Type 2 Diabetes

If you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it means that your body is not using insulin properly. This situation is known as insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease that affects individuals who live a sedentary lifestyle (excess body weight with minimal physical activity). During the initial stages, your pancreas will make extra insulin to make up for it.
However, over time, your pancreas won’t be able to keep up with the insulin demands to keep the glucose levels in your blood at normal levels. The main problem with type 2 diabetes is that the insulin produced by the pancreas doesn’t work very well. This interferes with the functions of insulin to allow glucose to enter the cells, as well as controlling glucose release from the liver.
