A study that found that low levels of household income and education are associated with the onset of type 2 diabetes in Canadian women, independent of other factors such as the well-established relationship with excess weight. For men, the association between type 2 diabetes and lower education attainment disappeared entirely when weight and behavioural factors were taken into account.
