Type 2 diabetes

What is Type 2 Diabetes

This condition arises due to either lower level of insulin produced or the cells not properly responding to the hormone. It affects 85 to 90 per cent of all people with diabetes and by far the most common form of diabetes.

It is used to be called non-insulin dependent diabetes or mature onset diabetes. Even though it usually affects older adults, more and more younger people, even children, are getting type 2 diabetes nowadays and it is a worry. This is commonly described as ‘life style disease’.

It is most common in people

  1. over the age of 40
  2. overweight or obese
  3. overweight teenagers and kids
  4. with unhealthy diet and lack of exercise
  5. high blood pressure or heart disease
  6. passed on to generation through DNA.

Often symptoms go unnoticed as the disease develops gradually. It can be prevented but sadly it has no cure. It is estimated that up to 60% of type 2 diabetes can be prevented. People at risk of type 2 diabetes can delay and even prevent this disease by following a healthy lifestyle.

Dr Ray Strand monitored over 50 patients in his practice, that had type 2 diabetes mellitus that were not only able to control their diabetes and get off their medications, but were also able to totally reverse their diabetes through his programme. It took his diabetic patients a minimum of 18 to 24 months on the Healthy for Life Program to accomplish this goal, so it is a slow process and you have to be consistent and patient with the programme.

Kari Hemminki of DKFZ collaborated with colleagues in Sweden and the United States to carry out the largest study ever on cancer risks of people with type 2 diabetes. The researchers discovered that people with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of developing 24 of the types of cancer studied. The most significant risk elevation was established for pancreatic and liver cell cancers. Full story

It’s nearly impossible to find well-informed people in this particular topic,
however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
