Type 2 Diabetes

 

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is often called adult or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes among African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, and as well as the aged population. Genetics plays a large role in type 2 diabetes and family history is a risk factor. However, low levels of activities, poor diet, and excess body weight (especially in those around the waist) are significantly at high risk of developing such disease.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic, life-long disease that results from either the body not producing enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is required for the body to enable the use of sugar. Sugar is the basic fuel for the cells in the body, and insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the bloodstream, it can cause 2 problems:

  1. The immediate effect is the body cells maybe starved for energy.
  2. Over a period of time the high level of blood glucose levels may affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves or the heart.

This related insulin resistance is the lack of the ability of the body to respond to insulin appropriated and it is quite often accompanied with obesity and high cholesterol levels. However, this disease can also develop in lean people, especially in elderly individuals.
