    A good place to look is PUBMED a free archive of the life science journals.
    Here is the first ref I found that matches key words zyprexa, olanzapine & diabetes.(olanzapine is the generic name for zyprexa). There are several other articles matching your search criteria.
    Here is a more recent ref
    Rate of New-Onset Diabetes Among Patients Treated With Atypical or Conventional Antipsychotic Medications for Schizophrenia MedGenMed. 2004 Jan–March; 6(1) (olanzapine was one of the antipsychotic medications in the study)

    thank you sir or ma'am

    thank you very much that helped a lot. I already clued in on the weight gain related to increased risk of such a disease but figured it triggered like tha sleeping genes or sumthin. Olanzapine's a stabilizer according to my local hospital, used for treating trauma and shock. I was prescribed a pill a day, gained roughly 20 pounds within tha last year and even having reduced my dosage to 10 instead of 20 mg's the side effects are still like brand new every time. cant remember but if theres a link to that site ill check it out, think there's any other anti-psychotics with less side effects, and less bad baggage withit? Thanks again!
