    The Body Shape That Protects Women From Diabetes

    The findings, which were presented this weekend at the American Society of Human Genetics’ annual meeting, traced the connection to a genetic variation carried by women with hips that are larger in comparison to the rest of their body.

According to a press release from the American Society of Human Genetics, researchers are currently investigating the discrepancy, but hypothesize that there may be a sex-specific protein that interacts with KLF14 and diminishes its impact on men. While the findings are surprising, Peter LePort, MD, medical director of the Memorial Care Center for Obesity at California’s Orange Coast Memorial Medical Care Center, tells Yahoo Health that he isn’t shocked.
