Why does diabetes cause weight loss in some people and weight gain in some others?


Deeksha Khare says

Uncontrolled diabetes causes weight loss. Once you control diabetes with drugs the patient would regain weight. Additionally drugs like Metformin, GLP1Analogues and SGLT2 inhibitors cause weight loss. While drugs like Pioglitazone, Sulphonylurea and Insulin cause weight gain.
