Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes is a chronic health condition characterized by high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. It occurs when the body's cells become resistant to the effects of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar. This often results from a combination of genetic factors and lifestyle choices such as poor diet and lack of physical activity.

Unlike Type 1 Diabetes, which is usually diagnosed in childhood and involves the body not producing enough insulin, Type 2 Diabetes is more common in adults and can sometimes be managed with lifestyle changes like healthy eating and exercise. However, in some cases, medications or insulin may be necessary. Monitoring blood sugar levels and adopting a health-conscious lifestyle are key to effectively managing and preventing complications.
