Whаt Cаuѕеѕ Diаbеtеѕ?


The world has seen a massive increase in Type 2 Diabetes cases. It is important to note here that those with Type 2 diabetes can still physically produce insulin as opposed to those with Type 1. Type 1 cannot be prevented, but there are ways to prevent Type 2. This article will discuss those factors which contribute to the development of Type 2 diabetes.

When the blood has higher blood glucose levels, it becomes difficult for the body to produce enough insulin to allow the body to absorb the glucose. This is known as insulin resistance.
