Unlike diabetes type 1, which is diagnosed shortly after birth, the condition develops later due to problems with the hormone insulin.
It becomes unable to work properly, causing blood sugar levels to rise, and resulting in diabetes type 2 symptoms.
Diagnosed by a GP, the recommended treatment involves changing your diet and lifestyle, as well as possibly taking medication.
Losing weight may be a good way to not only get your diabetes type 2 under control, but also reverse it, according to diabetes.co.uk
“With time and dedication, type 2 diabetes can be reversed and the results can be very rewarding, with less tiredness and better all-round health.”
