Type 2 diabetes is likely to be associated with lifestyle behavior. It is a chronic disorder in which the blood glucose (sugar) level is too high. In type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make sufficient insulin or is insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas, which regulates the movement of glucose (sugar) in your cells to be used for energy.
If the body doesn’t make enough insulin, glucose builds up in your bloodstream. Excess glucose stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells; therefore the body’s cell cannot use it for energy. Type 2 diabetes can be managed by medication and a healthy lifestyle will keep your blood glucose levels steady. The symptoms occur very gradually and cannot be noticed in the early stages. People who are overweight or above 45 years or with a family history of type 2 diabetes are more likely to develop this disease.
