About Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes, often referred to as diabetes mellitus, is a metabolic disease in which the patients' blood glucose levels remains high. Depending on the cause of development of diabetes, it can be divided into three types:
- Type 1 diabetes (or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus): In this condition, the pancreas do not produce the required amount of insulin, leading to high blood glucose levels.
- Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus): In this condition, though the body produces the required amount of insulin, the cells do not respond to it, increasing the glucose levels in the body.
- Gestational diabetes: This condition occurs in pregnant women without any prior history of diabetes
Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, is a result of the body's inability to produce enough insulin or insulin resistance or both. It is managed by providing symptomatic relief and improving the quality of life. Type 2 diabetes accounts for nearly 90%-95% of the total number of diabetes cases worldwide and is primarily diagnosed in the middle-aged and old age groups, i.e., between the ages of 30 and 75 years. However, it can occur even during childhood. The risks of type 2 diabetes include high blood pressure, advancing age, obesity, history of gestational diabetes, family history of diabetes, poor nutrition during pregnancy, physical inactivity, and impaired glucose tolerance.
