FACT: It may be reassuring to know that if you are overweight, dropping a moderate 5 percent to 10 percent of your weight cuts your risk of developing diabetes in half.
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. It is when the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to breakdown glucose for energy.
When you eat food, the body breaks down the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in our bodies. Insulin is what takes the sugars from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood, rather than going to the cells complications arise.
Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always develop a condition known as
"pre-diabetes" blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
Whether you are a pre-diabetic or have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you can take small steps that will avoid, improve, or help you manage your condition.
Can Type 2 Diabetes Be Cured?
Diabetes Prevention is the best cure. Diabetes Research has also shown that if you take action to manage your blood glucose when you have pre-diabetes, you can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes from ever developing.
Project You: Type 2 will give you the necessary tools to make these changes and help you manage or prevent type 2 diabetes.
