Type 2 Diabetes – Will a Diabetes Diagnosis Reduce Your Life Span?

No-one wants to think about rising blood sugar levels and weight gain, especially when you are relatively young. It’s rare to find young adults in their 20’s or 30’s who are mindful of their blood sugar unless they have had a condition such as Type 1 diabetes since their younger years. But these days it is less common to see people with Type 1 diabetes especially when you compare the numbers to Type 2 diabetes. Both are a severe condition, but Type 2 is more common in our society. While Type 1 is an autoimmune disease, Type 2 which has usually been seen in adults, is now found increasingly in the young population. The genesis of this form of diabetes is insulin resistance.

Type 2 Diabetes – Can Low-Carbohydrate Meals Lessen the Chance of Developing Diabetes?

Insulin resistance is the hallmark of Type 2 diabetes. The pancreas makes an average or above average supply of insulin but it cannot effectively do its job of helping sugar enter the cells to make energy. Too much insulin resistance, abnormally high insulin levels, and high blood sugar levels in healthy people can put them at risk for developing full-blown Type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes – Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Help You Beat Diabetes

Relatively easy, simple to adapt lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce your chances of developing Type 2 diabetes. It is unquestionably better to prevent any illness developing than to have to treat or manage it. There are two underlying causes of Type 2 diabetes. One is the development of insulin resistance. Insulin resistance means the tissues of the body become less sensitive to the effects of insulin. The result is sugar remains in the blood and does not enter the body’s cells as easily. To lower the blood sugar and allow insulin to do all its required to, an increased amount of insulin is required. The second cause of Type 2 diabetes is when insulin cannot be increased to cope with rising demand. So, insulin resistance or decreased insulin secretion, or both can lead to the development of Type 2 diabetes.
