Doctors’ message to Asian Americans: Watch out for diabetes even if you’re young and thin
Los Angeles Times

The patients filing into Dr. Ronesh Sinha’s clinic in Redwood City, Calif., were like nothing he had ever seen.

As a doctor in training, Sinha studied which patients were usually diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes: they were at least middle-aged, ate too much fast food, drank soda and didn’t exercise.

The Silicon Valley techies visiting his office were typically slender Asian Americans in their 30s who worked out regularly and ate healthy meals. But, as Sinha repeatedly found, they either already had or were about to get diabetes.
