Does the Queen of Butter Have Type 2 Diabetes?

Paula Deen, queen of rich and fatty Southern foods drenched in butter, revealed today that she has the version of Type 2 diabetes which is linked to obesity. This secret may cause fans of the Food Network star to think twice before making one of her recipes, which are notorious for their high fat content. Deen may be looking for a podiatrist in the near future...
Type 2 diabetes is when the body resists insulin production. Insulin delivers all glucose, or sugar, to our cells. When you are overweight, the body is less sensitive to the insulin that is released from the pancreas. Medical evidence suggests that fat cells are more resistant to insulin than muscle cells. When you have more fat cells than muscle cells, insulin is less effective overall, and the glucose circulates in the blood instead of being carried to the cells to be used for energy.
Losing just 7 to 10 pounds can drastically reduce the progression of the disease, as well as cutting back on foods high in fat content and cholesterol (Deen will have to change her cooking strategy!).
