Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in the world

Type 2 diabetes is by far the most common form of diabetes in the world. It affects approximately 80-90% of all people with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes happens when the pancreas can't make enough insulin and the body's cells can't respond properly to the insulin that is made. This leads to high blood glucose levels.

High blood sugar increases your risk of other health problems

As time goes on, your pancreas makes less and less insulin, making it harder to keep your blood sugar in a healthy range. If your blood sugar is too high and stays too high for long periods of time, your risk of other health problems increases.

Understand and manage type 2 diabetes

Understanding type 2 diabetes is the first step toward managing it. So what do you need to know? The first thing you need to know is how diabetes affects your body. Next you have to know how to maintain your health, treat your diabetes, know when your treatment is successful and what to do when it’s not.
