In a recent toss-aside on the Web, someone wrote, "Mom, you didn't get diabetes because you got fat, you got fat because you have diabetes. It's a metabolic disorder." As an obese diabetic man, I blinked ... hard ... and went, "What?" Can someone with more medical knowledge than I please explain this to me? Is this true? I always thought my progression from prediabetes to diabetes was because of weight gain.
