Type 2 Diabtes

 What is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic and progressive condition. Where the body becomes resistant to the general effects of insulin. Gradually the pancreas loses its ability to produce insulin.

Type 2 diabetes is called adult-onset diabetes. Earlier it was called non-insulin diabetes. Currently called insulin neutral diabetes.

It can happen in two ways. Firstly, insulin secretion complications occur or less insulin secretion occurs; Secondly, there is a blockage on which insulin will work. Insulin production in these patients is much less than required. They may also reduce the effectiveness of insulin in the body.

Type 2 diabetes is more common in diabetic patients. Their number is more than 90 percent. About 50 percent of their beta cells are destroyed. After 6 hours of fasting, the blood sugar level should be assumed to be 140 mg, about 75% of the beta cells have been destroyed. The disease gradually builds up in the body.

She is at first prediabetic. It is later converted to type 2 diabetes. The disease progresses with age and obesity. Type 2 diabetes is not caused by a lack of insulin, but by insulin resistance.

When researchers discovered type 2 diabetes, their idea was that patients would have lower levels of insulin in their bodies. But surprisingly, the patients did not have less insulin in their body, but more excess insulin. (Insulin is in the body but insulin cannot reduce the excess glucose in the blood, this is insulin resistance or insulin inability.) In response to insulin resistance, our body begins to secrete more and more insulin. There is a time when our body can no longer cope with this constant excess glucose as it secretes insulin. That's when a person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

This is dealt with through diet control and hard work.

Parents, siblings, or relatives who have diabetes are more likely to have type 2 diabetes....Dr Sanjay Kumar senior diabtoligist ranchi
