Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

Type 2 diabetes is a common type of diabetes that occurs when your blood glucose is too high. Blood glucose or also known as blood sugar is your main source of energy and comes mainly from the food you eat.

Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that helps glucose get into your cells to be used for energy. In type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make sufficient insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Too much glucose then stays in your blood and not enough reaches your cells.

Who Is More Likely To Develop Type 2 Diabetes?

There are various risk factors for type 2 diabetes, including age, race, pregnancy, stress, certain medications, genetics or family history, and high cholesterol. However, one of the best predictors of type 2 diabetes is being obese. Almost 90% of people with type 2 diabetes are obese.

Obesity causes increased levels of fatty acids and inflammation, leading to insulin resistance, which in turn can lead to type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and accounts for approximately 90% of diabetes cases. People with this disease can produce some of their insulin, but it’s often not enough or the body’s cells don’t respond to it. As a result, insulin resistance, glucose builds up in the body, leading to high blood sugar.

Since type 2 diabetes and weight gain are linked, diet and exercise are often the main treatments for type 2 diabetes. Oral medications can also improve insulin sensitivity. A blood sugar level can be normalized with insulin injections in some cases.
