Causes Of Diabetes Type 2

The pancreas produce the hormone insulin that helps in the metabolism of glucose. Glucose from the food is turned into energy through the help of insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the body makes insulin, but it is ineffective at performing its job.

The pancreas produce more insulin while glucose levels keep on rising in the body. It is important to understand why this happens, and you can consult a virtual doctor online to understand the underlying cause. Here are a few reasons why this happens:

  • Family history: Some people are at a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes who have a family history of this condition.
  • Metabolic Syndrome: People with insulin resistance suffer from high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and excessive triglycerides.
  • Extra Weight: People who are overweight suffer from insulin resistance.
  • Glucose released from the liver: Normally, the liver does release glucose whenever the blood sugar is low.

Treatment

Doctors recommend blood glucose tests to check the blood sugar levels in fasting and 2 hours after you have consumed a meal. After the results, your doctor will recommend you treatment and put you on the right medication for your condition.

  • Lose weight
  • Eat healthy foods and maintain a balanced diet
  • Daily exercise
  • Monitor your blood sugar levels
