Diabetes is a never ending disease that takes place when the pancreas does not produce adequate insulin or when the body does not effectively use insulin. Ordinary diabetes is characterized by blood sugar levels above normal. Type 2 diabetes is the diabetes caused when the body is not able to use insulin owing to lack of insulin related to blood sugar levels.

Type 2 Diabetes is a life long disease. Normally, our pancreas creates a hormone called Insulin. It is the one that gets glucose from the food that you eat. When a person has Type 2 diabetes, they make Insulin but the insulin is not doing its job. Because of that, the glucose just goes into our blood. Doctors called it Insulin Resistance. Most of the obese people or over weight has Type 2 Diabetes. Even with young adult that are obese could have Type 2 diabetes. People who are not aware and have poor lifestyle could lead themselves in danger. Once you are over weight, you can get Type 2 Diabetes and sometimes it is in our genes. If you will still not aware, Diabetes will not kill you but complications. You can catch a illness because your body get weaken when you have Diabetes.
