Obese Diabetics Have A Lower Overall Death Rate Than Normal Weight Diabetics

From "Thinner Diabetics Face Higher Death Rate" on ScienceBlog:
American adults of a normal weight with new-onset diabetes die at a higher rate than overweight/obese adults with the same disease, according to a new Northwestern Medicine study.

The study, to be published in the Aug. 7 issue of JAMA, found that normal-weight participants experienced both significantly higher total and non-cardiovascular mortality than overweight/obese participants.
