I know a woman who is rail thin, always running around. Nervous but, thin and she eats right.
So, if someone is that thin, does weight really matter?

I read somewhere a while back that being too thin is almost as bad as being overweight. Of course being underweight is not a problme I have to deal with…LOL
Like Gabby, I'm not quite sure what your asking here.

If I understand you correctly (chuckle, chuckle) and both individuals are type 2 diabetics…sometimes type 2s loose extreme amounts of weight which impacts many aspects of health…but at least your thin friend can do things like getting up and down, tying their shoes, shopping in regular clothing stores LOL. But seriously, added weight compromises all your body, 'specially eyes,heart and circulation, kidneys and liver. So to err on the thin side may be a benefit to these organs, Just like everything else "in moderation" not the extreme. (sigh) maybe someday I'll be on the thin side (big sigh).

I don't really understand your question. Weight makes a huge difference in your body's ablility to function properly. Too thin and too heavy are both extreams. That is why many doctors refer to it as a healthy weight. Getting there is just the problem.
