Type 2

In Type 2 diabetes, there are two main reasons for high blood sugar…

Insulin Resistance: The condition in which the body doesn’t use its own insulin properly.

Insufficient Insulin Secretion: The pancreas no longer produces sufficient insulin to maintain the body’s glucose levels.

“Type 2” diabetes usually develops in adults, but it has now begun showing up more frequently in children. With child obesity growing within our country, Type 2 diabetes is becoming more prominent in our youth. Maintaining your Type 2 diabetes can rely on the use of insulin, but you often will find that oral medications, along with exercise and a healthy diet, can be used to simply treat the disease while helping you stay on top of your daily health.
