I was looking at diabetes the other day, and I noticed something strange. Lower amounts of lipase are a symptom of diabetes, as is overweightness. However, since lipase is the enzyme that breaks down fats, shouldn't a lack of it mean that less of it enters your blood stream and is simply excreted instead? In that case, how come diabetic people are often overweight?
This question has been bugging me for ages, does anyone know why?
