The scientists surmise that the chronic stress that PTSD patients permanently suffer leads to changes in the hormonal response patterns. This can have a morbid influence on the metabolism and the glucose utilization.

NCD Pandemic Killing Over 37 Million This Year
...The World Economic Forum (WEF) ranks the NCD Pandemic as one of the top global threats to economic development, describing the Pandemic as an economic issue, "not a health issue." Reports conclude the NCD Pandemic is threatening every nations' productivity, decimating the world's labour force, and draining government coffers to cover escalating costs for healthcare, disability, and more. According to the WEF, the NCD Pandemic will cost $47 Trillion between 2011 and 2020.
Originally called "diseases of civilization" because they go hand in hand with industrial development, NCDs have now spread around the world. NCD stands for Non-Communicable Disease but no gender, age or country is immune; historically, nothing ever has spread so far and fast without an infectious component.
The World Health Organization (WHO) identifies the "big four" pandemic NCDs as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and lung diseases like asthma; the World Economic Forum (WEF) adds "mental health" to the list, including autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, Mad Cow disease, Alzheimer's, other dementias and more - emphasizing the $16 Trillion "mental health" costs.
2004: “PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY IN HEALTH ACT”
The “Personal Responsibility in Health Act” goes beyond race in profiling America’s “visually identifiable unwanted” – adding sick, chubby and fat people to the list. The Act supposedly prevents frivolous lawsuits stemming from the “obesity-related” epidemics that started 20 years ago and now affect 60% of the American population.
...is the first step towards denial of medical coverage and other benefits on grounds of personal responsibility or irresponsibility; and launches the USA’s return to eugenics laws – to forced sterilizations, imprisonment and euthanasia on grounds of irresponsibility, personal incompetence and genetic inferiority. Some of the original eugenics laws stayed on the books until the 1970’s. Many decision-makers were sorry to see them go and want to bring them back.
...Called the “Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act,” Bill H. R. 339 passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on March 10, 2004. It’s now on the Senate Calendar.
NOTE: “Obesity” is not just about great big fat people – it’s about the cellular edema and weight gain in diseases like chronic kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes and many types of cancer. 60% of Americans suffer “obesity-related” diseases and disorders – few are really “fat” – most are just sick.

It is the medical community's/CDC's job to correlate the data so as to better cure people, but they aren't taking into account a number of things where Diabetes is concerned.
Oxygen deprived muscles don't burn any blood sugar and oxygen deprived muscles don't use any insulin, so the more oxygen deprived the person is, the more their blood sugar will go up and the more they will look like they are insulin resistant.
