Rossouw says he's willing to accept that a proportion of people were carbohydrate intolerant before they became diabetic, but believes obesity causes carbohydrate intolerance
, not the other way round.
Impact of different levels of carbohydrate intolerance
on neonatal outcomes classically associated with gestational diabetes mellitus.

Temporary carbohydrate intolerance
may occur with gastroenteritis, malnutrition, or in pre-term infants, but otherwise is rare in infancy. Controlled trials have demonstrated no difference in colic, spitting-up, vomiting, fussiness, cramps, flatus, or stools frequency between iron-fortified and nonfortified formulas.[1,2]
According to the pharmaceutical industry, what used to be called `wind' is now `complex carbohydrate intolerance
Women who are pregnant and who have diabetes (either established [i.e., diabetes mellitus diagnosed before conception] or gestational [i.e., carbohydrate intolerance
of variable severity with onset or first recognition during pregnancy]) are at increased risk for adverse fetal and maternal outcomes (1,2).
Linkages between magnesium deficiency and insulin resistance, carbohydrate intolerance
, accelerated atherosclerosis, dyslipidemia [abnormal blood fats], hypertension, and adverse outcomes in pregnancies complicating diabetes have been observed or postulated.
But such glucose or carbohydrate intolerance
isn't necessarily caused by biological aging.
