10 Causes of Diabetes
Could there truly be a connection between climate and diabetes, especially when it comes to cold weather? Studies show that type 1 diabetes is far more common in colder European countries, than in countries with warmer climates, such as in Africa or South America. In fact, Finland is the country with the highest rate of type 1 diabetes in the entire world. The science to back this up is that, when the body is consistently cold, it tries to warm its core temperature by slowing down its usual creation of insulin to cause the blood sugar to rise and create more heat.
