What is Diabetes Type 2?
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.
