    Human-Dog Diabetes Connection

    A recent study conducted by researchers in Sweden and the United Kingdom concluded that diabetes risk is shared between people and their dogs.

    The study, published in December in the journal the BMJ, found that pet owners whose dogs were diagnosed with diabetes were more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes themselves when compared to owners of dogs that did not have diabetes.

    The findings support previous research that demonstrated that overweight dog owners were more likely to have overweight dogs (obesity is one of the risk factors for developing Type 2 diabetes).
