Health officials say Texas is one of the most unhealthy places in the country for people with diabetes and obese.
The study, published Thursday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, shows that Texas is a leading state in obesity and diabetes.
Texas has the highest rate of obesity in the nation.
It also has the most diabetes and the highest rates of obesity.
But the state is also one of only two states with a low rate of people with type 2 diabetes, and it’s among the states with the highest proportion of people who are obese.
That’s because Texas’ population is so large that people are more likely to get diabetes from having too many of the conditions, Dr. Sarah McBride, a researcher at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, told the Houston Chronicle.
Texas ranks No. 5 in the United States for people who have diabetes.
It’s also the state with the lowest rate of obese people, at 7.7 percent.
More than 80 percent of people in the state live in households with incomes above $75,000 a year.
Texas is also a leader in the obesity epidemic.
About 13 percent of adults and 12 percent of children in the Lone Star State have some form of obesity, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census data.
Obesity can lead to type 2, metabolic syndrome, type 1, and type 2-specific diseases.
And because the state’s population is mostly white, it’s also a place with a high percentage of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and other people of color, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
