Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how the body metabolizes sugar (glucose), its main source of fuel. The body breaks down the food we eat into glucose. The hormone insulin regulates movement of glucose from the blood into the cells. People with type 2 diabetes may not make enough insulin or they are resistant to the effects of it. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going to the cells, it leads to diabetic complications. These may include problems with heart disease, stroke, eyesight and kidney function. Controlling your blood sugar will give you more energy and reduce your risk of these complications.

Symptoms of Type II Diabetes Include:

  • Increased Thirst
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Loss
  • Increased Urination
  • Increased Hunger
  • Sores That Do Not Heal
  • Blurred Vision
