Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, in which your body fails to utilize insulin in your body. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells and controls the blood sugar in the body. That said, with type 2 diabetes the body either doesn’t make enough insulin or it resists insulin. Either way, it causes the blood sugar levels to spike to dangerous levels, leading to various symptoms and complications.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 95% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, largely as a result of excess body weight and physical inactivity.
So far, there is no cure for type 2 diabetes. However, early diagnosis and certain lifestyle changes can surely make a great difference. Losing weight, eating healthy and exercising regularly can do wonders when it comes to managing the disease.
