Is there a table or chart which shows how many people are diabetic (type 2) by weight or BMI?
The background to my question is that I have a BMI of 39 which is very high and I respond well to diabetes meds (sitagliptin) when I have been given them in the past but my HbA1c (which has risen to 53 in the past) is now 41 and I am being told I am okay and need no more medication. I believe HbA1c can be misleading but my GP is not interested.
So I am keen to know how likely it is that I don't have diabetes (based on my BMI, mainly abdominal fat, male gender and 65 years age). If it is extremely unlikely then I will feel more able to challenge my GP's dismissal of my concern.
Where can I get to see such data?
