Many people avoid treatment of Diabetes Mellitus type 2 or accept inadequate control because they do not want to gain weight.  They often point to friends or relatives who were put on insulin or another medication and then gained weight.  Many studies have been done to understand this phenomenon and to help patients control their diabetes without facing unpleasantness from the scale.  The ACCROD study reported in Diabetes Care predicts which patients are more likely to gain weight and which medications are associated with weight gain.  Uncontrolled Diabetes type 2 is assoicated with multiple complications which can impair both the quality and quantity of your life.
