    Not good news

    Marijuana use leads to prediabetes, study says

    Marijuana use can increase the chance of prediabetes in young adults, according to a study published in September of 2015.
    This could get you to pass on the cookies the next time you get the munchies.

    A recent study found that young adult marijuana users are 50% more likely to develop prediabetes, or poor blood sugar control.

    Prediabetes is when blood sugar is at high levels — but not so high to be considered as type 2 diabetes.

    The study — conducted by the University of Minnesota and published in the journal, "Diabetologia" — looked at 3,034 people between the ages 18 to 30 from four U.S. urban areas, and found they were more at risk for the condition.

    Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the U.S. with more than 19.8 million past-month users, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

    Michael Bancks, a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at the University of Minnesota, authored the study and determined that the risks of prediabetes were 40% greater in those who used marijuana 100 times or more in their lifetime.

    For regular users — who used once or more in the past 30 days — the risk was 65% greater.

    “We believe our data suggest individuals who choose to use marijuana should be informed of the possibility that marijuana use may increase their risk for developing prediabetes," Bancks said in an email.

    The National Health Service U.K. told Vice that the hunger caused by marijuana leads users to binge on unhealthy foods with little nutritional value.

    "If maintained on a long-term basis, this type of diet can lead to obesity, which is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes," a spokesperson from NHS said.

    Bancks told the Daily News that factors such as the "munchies" may explain their results — yet the results did not alter too much when they took into consideration how many calories were consumed by participants.

    The NHS published a statement questioning the study’s findings.

    "The main difficulty with this research is that the study design cannot prove direct cause and effect,” a NHS said. “Many other health and lifestyle factors could be linked to both cannabis use and diabetes risk, such as diet .”

    Bancks said he agrees because, "no one study is definitive in its own right."

    another study that won't affect one current or soon to be new pot user. if they compiled all the negative things that MIGHT be associated with pot, me and most of my older friends would be daid/retarded/diabetic/junkie/baby killers by now.

    some people can smoke tobacco for 80 years and not get cancer. some people can smoke for a few years and get it. life is a gamble, and i'd rather live some of it with a buzz on. :dance:

    definition of cormorbidity right here, ladies and gents. The hallmark and answer key to the influx of douchebag pointless "recent study" news stories of the last decade and a half.

    Smart stoners get high after they eat. You just dropped $40 on the sack, you don't need to be dropping another $80 at the Publix, ice cream aisle, chips section, what have you.

    Google "marijuana derealization" or "marijuana panic attacks" or "marijuana depersonalization" or "marijuana ocd". Smoking marijuana as a teenager was one of the biggest mistakes I've made in my life.

    too bad for you. doesn't affect the vast majority of us at all. except for a love of chinese food and chocolate.

    people who get panic attacks while using pot shouldn't use it. but oddly enough, a lot of them will continue to use it and then bitch about the effects.

    people who eat too much and get panic attacks learn a valuable lesson on moderation and common sense.

    Had a friend die, 45 years old. Smoked weed everyday. The funeral director, who is also a friend, said his lungs looked like the inside of a one-hitter. Don't know why anyone would want to smoke anything.

    Eating unhealthy food leads to pre diabetes not weed.
