All about Type 2 DIABETES & it’s treatment
Type 2 Diabetes is the most common type of diabetes in which your pancreatic cells are either not making enough insulin or your body cells are unable to use insulin the way they should. Insulin, a pancreatic hormone, helps in the intake of glucose for body cells to use as fuel for energy. Glucose from the food can’t make its way into the body cells, and that increases the amount of glucose in your bloodstream, and insufficient in your cells. This causes your body to depend on other nutrients.
Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms
Most of the patients with type 2 diabetes don’t know they have it because the symptoms are usually mild (prediabetes). But if the disease grows severe, these are the symptoms that occur-
- Excessive thirst
- Constant hunger
- Lack of energy
- Unexplanatory weight loss
- Slowly healing wounds
- Skin problems (darkened areas of neck and armpits)
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination.
If you have any of these symptoms do not take it lightly, and see a doctor.
Type 2 Diabetes Complication or Risks
Increased blood sugar level can cause various problems in your body parts such as to heart, eye, kidney, blood vessels, or nerves. Type 2 Diabetes often gets complicated because of other factors which are already present inpatient like high blood pressure. Complications of type 2 diabetes include hyperglycemia (excessive glucose in the blood) resulting in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) which can be dangerous if not treated on time. A person with any above-mentioned symptoms must get checked up.
The risk of Type 2 Diabetes is increased by being inactive, not doing any exercises, eating excessive junk food, smoking. Most of the factors can be controlled but some of them are uncontrollable like genetic element, race, and gender, as women with (PCOS) are at increased risk. The risk of type 2 diabetes is high in people above 45 years old.
