What Is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease that affects the body’s ability to properly manage blood glucose levels. The disease’s main causes are poor diet and lack of exercise. Once type 2 diabetes has developed, a person’s body loses its ability to produce enough insulin, a hormone that allows your body to process sugar (glucose) from ingested carbohydrates. This lack of natural insulin can cause high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Type 2 diabetes currently affects over 25 Million people in The USA, while over 80 Million show prediabetic symptoms. The sheer numbers of men and women diagnosed with the disease practically ensure that any medication developed to treat it would be incredibly profitable.
