Type 2 is disorder of the way the body uses and regulates glucose and results in too much sugar in the bloodstream and can lead to disorders of the circulatory, immune system, and nervous system. In adult onset of the disease there are multiple reasons that your body cannot regulate your blood glucose levels.

  • Your pancreas is not producing enough insulin; a hormone that regulates sugar moving into your cells and out of your circulation
  • Your cells are no longer responding to insulin and so are not taking the sugar into them.

  • Increase in thirst
  • Urination that is frequent
  • Increase in hunger
  • Weight loss that is unintentional
  • Fatigue

Your general practitioner can help you manage your chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes. This is done through constant monitoring of blood glucose levels and checking for secondary ailments caused by diabetes. Such as wounds that aren’t healing or vision and hearing abnormalities.
