Type 2 Diabetes

In type 2 diabetes, the individual can produce insulin but is unable to utilize it for maintaining the blood sugar levels. This is termed as “insulin resistance”. This condition could arise due to genes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, improper functioning of bets cells, bad communication between cells, family history etc. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease associated with a shorter life expectancy because of high risk of cardiovascular diseases, amputations, blindness, dementia, and kidney failures.
