Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a chronic disease that involves having high glucose levels. 90% of people who have diabetes have type 2. Diabetes is caused by a problem in which someone’s body makes or uses too much insulin. When you have type 2 diabetes, your fat, liver, and muscle cells do not respond correctly to insulin. This is called insulin resistance. As a result, blood sugar does not get into these cells to be stored for energy. Thin people can develop type 2diabetes but it is far less common. Family history and genes play a large role in type 2 diabetes. Low activity level, poor diet, and excess body weight around the waist increase your risk. To try and prevent Type 2, monitor and control your blood sugar levels, learn how much fat, protein, and carbohydrates you need in your diet, mange your weight and diet carefully, get regular exercise which can improve blood flow, and there are also certain medications which can decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes. Several problems associated with type 2 eye problems including blindness, developing sores and infections on your legs which can lead to an amputated leg or foot, increase risk of heart attacks, strokes and numerous other problems. You can receive nerve damage and lose feeling in your body, and get very serious kidney issues. SO DON’T GET DIABETES
