Behind the scenes
About Type 2 Diabetes
- Your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin. Insulin works to store the excess sugar in liver and muscle.
- When you have type 2 diabetes, insulin cannot properly store sugar because your muscle and liver become insensitive to insulin. As a result, you have too much sugar in your bloodstream.
- Having too much sugar in the blood is dangerous, leading to problems with the kidneys, the eyes, the extremities, and other organs.
- In most cases, type 2 diabetes is linked to carrying too much weight, especially in the abdomen. Losing weight, and keeping it off, is the way for managing diabetes. Losing a modest 5% of the body weight can have dramatic improvements in your health.
- Medication can help, but so can improving your habits in diet and exercise.
- Maintaining a healthy weight means making good choices about what you eat as well as how much you eat.
- Keeping a food diary is important if you are diabetic. Maintaining a food diary increases your awareness of what, how much and why you are eating.
- Keeping track of your physical activity will help you know if you are getting enough exercise, and will inspire you to exercise more.
