Publication type: News story

In a nutshell: This story reviews an article reported by BBC News that may have discovered why men may be more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than women. Their results indicated that men developed type 2 diabetes at a lower BMI than women of a similar age and speculated that men may be less sensitive to insulin than women or that males tend to store fat around their organs rather than under the skin as women do. However, further research is needed to explore these theories.
