Diabetes

Nov 06, 2023

Type 2 diabetes is a weight-related health concern that develops when the body becomes insulin resistant. This means the body either does not produce enough insulin or the body does not properly use what insulin is produced. Insulin is necessary to regulate blood sugar levels and break down the sugars and starches you eat into glucose. Insulin carries the glucose to the cells in the body, where is then used for energy. When the body does not make proper use of insulin, glucose builds up in the blood stream, which can cause damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart and the body’s cells are starved for energy.

Diabetes can lead to other health complications such as skin disorders, nerve damage (neuropathy), and eye problems like glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.  It also increases risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.
