About Type 2 Diabetes (Watch Video)

  • Your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin. Insulin works to store excess sugar in the liver and muscles.
  • When you have type 2 diabetes, insulin cannot properly store sugar because your muscles and liver become insensitive to insulin. As a result, you have too much sugar in your bloodstream.
  • Having too much sugar in the blood is dangerous, leading to problems with kidneys, eyes, extremities and other organs.
  • In most cases, type 2 diabetes is linked to carrying too much weight, especially in the abdomen. Losing weight, and keeping it off, is the way to manage diabetes. Losing a modest 5% of the body weight can produce dramatic improvements in your health.
  • Medication can help, but so can improving your diet and exercise habits. 
  • Maintaining a healthy weight means making good choices about what you eat as well as how much you eat.
