Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes, affecting roughly 38 million Americans, is a common condition in which people experience high blood sugar levels due to insulin resistance and insufficient insulin production. This form of diabetes typically develops as the pancreas produces less insulin, or the body’s sensitivity to insulin decreases.

The symptoms of type 2 include increased thirst and hunger, frequent urination, dry mouth, headaches, fatigue after meals, unexplained weight gain, and blurry vision.

The condition can be easily diagnosed with a routine blood test during a doctor’s visit. Early detection is important, as it allows for management of the condition through lifestyle changes and medication, reducing the risk of complications.
