Q. Last week, I was diagnosed to have diabetes when my annual medical examination showed my fasting blood sugar (FBS) to be 140 mg/dL. I was advised to diet (I am 50 lbs overweight) and exercise and to report for follow up after a month. Is it possible to treat diabetes without drugs? Is there no cure for diabetes yet? –jeena firstname.lastname@example.org

Ellen Granberg is an obesity sociologist who studies the processes that people go through when they lose weight and keep it off. As she says, “If the problem were that we don’t know what people should eat to lose weight, that would be one thing, but we don’t have that problem. There are a hundred weight loss plans out there that are perfectly good. We understand all about the physiology of weight loss maintenance and the metabolic impacts, but nothing about the social and emotional impacts. People who sustain weight loss over time move through a lot of different challenges.”
