Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes: Symptoms One of the fastest-growing and most widespread maladies in the world today is Type 2 diabetes, so understanding the symptoms is essential, along with information on proper dietary choices and potential cures for this affliction. Type 2 Diabetes Labeled a metabolic disorder that can affect people throughout their lifetime, diabetes mellitus type 2 affects nearly 400 million people around the world, and is often considered the modern “pandemic”. Type 2 is primarily characterized by high blood sugar and a lack of insulin, due to insulin resistance of the body. Proper blood sugar levels are essential in the body for the proper distribution of nutrients and energy levels, as well as the overall wellness of various organ systems. The primary cause of Type 2 diabetes is obesity, unlike Type 1 diabetes, which sufferers are typically born with and is characterized by a complete lack of insulin. Type 2 diabetes commonly manifests in middle age or older, but in the past few decades, the number of younger sufferers of this disorder has skyrocketed. Symptoms Some of the most common symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes include a lack of energy, increased levels of hunger and thirst, unexplained weight loss, frequent urination and exhaustion. The long-term effects of Type 2 diabetes are much more serious, and given that diabetes is a “permanent” condition in most cases, these life-threatening complications are something that must be considered. Many people who suffer from Type 2 diabetes also heart disease, strokes, poor blood flow, kidney failure and diabetic retinopathy. These serious complications can result in blindness, amputations of limbs, and a lower quality of life. Generally, someone who suffers from Type 2 diabetes has a life expectancy 10 years shorter than a healthy individual. If you see these types of symptoms, you should immediately speak to a doctor and determine whether you have developed Type 2 diabetes. However, even if you don’t see these symptoms, it would be wise to ask your doctor about your diabetic risk if you are overweight, have a sedentary lifestyle, have high blood pressure, come from an ethnicity that is more prone to diabetes, or have a family history of Type 2 diabetes. These can be early-onset factors that often lead to Type 2 diabetes, and may encourage you to make certain lifestyle changes to stay healthy. One of the best ways to prevent and manage Type 2 diabetes is by adopting an appropriate diet.
