Diabetes Type 2 Information
Diabetes type 2 is a medical condition in which a person's blood sugar (aka glucose) level becomes too high. Once a person has diabetes type 2 it will be a lifelong condition.
The root of the problem is found in the pancreas where the hormone insulin is produced. Insulin is responsible for controlling the amount of glucose in the blood.
Type 2 diabetes is where the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin. The condition is usually associated with obesity, so it is a growing problem in the western world.

Lifestyle changes may help manage diabetes type 2 in the early days after diagnosis, however as the condition gets worse medication in the form of tablets are often prescribed.
Because the symptoms of Diabetes type two can cause 'hypos' where a sufferer can experience confusion, slurred speech and eventually unconsciousness, it is vital that the patient wears a emergency medical ID so that treatment may be given quickly and their loved ones notified.
