Oh yes it can. I barely made it into the obese range before I suddenly lost a lot and then got diagnosed ... still wondering if the D or the obestiy came first, too!My father was not fat either. He is type II. Even with eating properly he is taking insulin.
Me I was fat. No really fat and after losing 75 pounds still am overweight by 25 pounds but don't take insulin. It can hit anyone I guess.
I noticed they did not say if it was an anonymous or relative donor ...Wow, I didn't realize Tracy Morgan was diabetic either...a kidney transplant's a pretty serious surgery, he'll have to be on a lot of immune suppressing medications. He's lucky they found a suitable kidney for him.
