Type 2 Diabetes

Type Two Diabetes

Diabetes can be defined as a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high glucose. Diabetes arises from lack of or markedly decreased insulin secretion.

The most prevalent form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes. About 90 to 95 percent people with diabetes are suffering from diabetes type 2. This type of diabetes is related with old age, family history, obesity, physical inactivity, food habits and ethnicity. About eighty percent of people with diabetes type 2 are overweight.

The three main types of diabetes:
* Type 1 diabetes
* Diabetes type 2
* Gestational diabetes

Type two diabetes also referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM).

In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produce enough insulin, but for some reason, the body is not able to use the insulin efficiently, causing insulin resistance. After a number of years, insulin production decreases. The glucose level builds up in the blood as in the case of diabetes type one.

The symptoms of diabetes type 2 develop gradually and are not as sudden as in diabetes type 1. Symptoms include  frequent urination, fatigue or nausea, unusual thirst,  blurred vision, weight loss, frequent infections, and slow healing of wounds and sores.

The number of patients suffering from diabetes symptoms is staggering, one needs to pay attention to diabetes diet and exercise, because exercise helps your body to use insulin better to convert glucose into energy for cells. For diabetes cure, patient should keep a check on symptoms of diabetes and should be aware about related information about diabetes and take diabetes medication accordingly for diabetes management.
