Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

The most common form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes, accounting for 95% of diabetes cause in adults. Type 2 diabetes used to be called adult-onset diabetes, but with the epidemic of obese and overweight kids, more teenagers are now developing type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes also called non- insulin dependent diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can still cause major health complications, particularly in the smallest blood vessels in the bod that nourish the kidney, nerves and eyes. Type 2 diabetes also increases risk for heart disease and stroke. With type 2 diabetes the pancreas usually produces some insulin but either the insulin produced is not enough for the body’s need or the body’s cells are resistant to it. Insulin resistance happens primarily in fat, liver and muscle cell. There is no cure for diabetes but type 2 diabetes can be controlled by weight management, nutrition and exercise. An A1C test is a blood test that estimates average glucose level in blood.
