15 Common Risk Factors of Type 2 Diabetes

13. An overweight peer group

Individuals are likely to take on the lifestyle of their peer group such as co-workers, family members and friends.

If your peer group is overweight, then be careful and avoid adopting their lifestyle.

14. Giving birth to a large baby

If a mother gives birth to a big-size baby (above 9 pounds), then she is more likely to develop diabetes.

15. Hypothyroidism

An increased level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) or/and antibodies against the thyroid tissue are frequently found in diabetics. These patients are also gluten intolerant.

All these 15 factors are closely related with diabetes. These factors should be kept in mind in order to protect you from type-2 diabetes.
