What is it about?
Weight gain induced Insulin Resistance leads to compensatory Insulin hypersecretion. So obese Type 2 Diabetes patients have increased fasting insulin levels. But non-obese Indians suffering from Type 2 Diabetes have been reported to have low levels of insulin. We tested whether the phenomenon of insulin hypersecretion holds true for non-obese Indians.

Why is it important?
Our findings provides the possibility that Type 2 Diabetes in non-obese people has a different pathology than the classically known Type 2 Diabetes. This is important from the aspect of screening and even therapy for non-obese patients.
