Type 2 Diabetes is a chronic ailment which requires you to live a healthy lifestyle. The disease comes about when the body’s natural ability to produce and utilize insulin and glucose no longer work or no longer work normally. Consequently, one of the effects of this is the amount of glucose (sugar) in the body becomes too high. If the body doesn’t produce enough insulin (which causes the glucose to be used as energy) the sugar levels will be high. When the sugar is not used for energy it causes damage by sticking to the inner walls of the vessels and organs. This can lead to blindness, amputations, heart disease, and many other conditions. It is important that when you have this disease, you get proper information on how to take care of yourself and visit your doctor regularly so that you can be able to manage it better.
