Diabetes - Type 2 

Diabetes Type2 - (Insulin Independant)


What is Type 2 Diabetes?


Type 2 diabetes is the most common type. It is high blood sugar levels due to your body not making enough of a hormone called insulin, or what it makes not working properly — known as insulin resistance.

Treatment includes, eating well and moving more. Some people may also need to take diabetes medication such as metformin or insulin. 

Type 2 diabetes can go undiagnosed for years if symptoms are missed. Left untreated high blood sugar levels can cause serious health problems called diabetes complications.

Anyone can develop type 2 diabetes but it mostly affects people over 25 often with a family history.

Type 2 diabetes doesn't just affect people living with overweight or obesity, although this is one of the risk factors, along with ethnicity.

There’s no cure but some people with type 2 diabetes can put their diabetes into remission by losing a significant amount of weight.

Someone with diabetes (Type 1 or Type 2) is 20 times more likely to experience an amputation.
