When thinking of diabetes what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Insulin? Sugar? Injections? Well did you know that most people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes aren’t in need of injections instead dietary changes and medications are used to help control their blood glucose/sugar levels?
Did you know diabetes is a progressive disorder for which there is no cure, only management? This makes it even more important that medications are taken regularly so that the diabetes progression can be slowed down.
Type 2 diabetes results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors such as insufficient physical activity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It occurs when either beta cells in the pancreas produce insufficient insulin and/or the insulin has reduced efficacy due to resistance.
