Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your Glucose Level in Blood is too high. Glucose is your body’s main source of energy. Your body can make glucose, but glucose also gets formed from the food you take.
Type 2 diabetes is not the same as Type 1 diabetes. In Type 1 diabetes, our pancreas doesn’t make any insulin.People with type 1 diabetes have to take insulin every day. In Type 2, your pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin, and the insulin it is making doesn’t always work as it should. Both types are forms of diabetes mellitus, meaning they lead to hyperglycemia (high blood sugar).
Type 2 diabetes usually affects elderly people, though it’s becoming more common in children. Type 1 diabetes usually develops in kids or young adults, but people of any age can get it.
Symptoms of type 2 Diabetes
✓ Urinating more often than usual, particularly at night
✓ Excessive Thirst
✓ Feeling so tired
✓ Unexplained weight loss
✓ Wounds which heal very slowly
✓ Blurred vision
✓ Numbness or tingling in Hands or Feet
Is Diabetes a dangerous disease?
High glucose levels in your blood can seriously damage your internal organs. People can lead a healthy life only when a proper treatment is taken.
If I have Type 2 diabetes and take insulin, do I have to continue for longer period?
Not at all necessary. If you can lose weight, change your diet, increase your physical activities, or change your medications, you may be able to cease insulin therapy.
Will exercise and other physical activities control my diabetes level?
Exercise is extremely beneficial in the management of Type 2 diabetes. It’s better to consult your doctor about exercise guidelines, to exercise safely and reduce risks.
