Type 2 Diabetes

Around 850,000 people are currently living with type-2 diabetes but are yet to be diagnosed. 

Type 2 Diabetes – is a condition that affects the way your body can use sugar (glucose) for energy.  

When we eat, our pancreas produces insulin so that we can use the glucose in our food for energy.  When someone has Type 2 diabetes it means that they have become insulin resistant and their bodies can’t use this glucose properly and they end up with high amounts of sugar in their blood and this can cause all kinds of problems.  

Type 2 Diabetes can be treated with medication but its best to try and avoid developing the condition in the first place by making some healthy lifestyle changes.
