4 FAST FACTS ABOUT TYPE 2 DIABETES
- Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a chronic condition that affects the way your body processes glucose (a type of sugar) in your blood.
- Insulin is a hormone that helps your body use sugar for the energy it needs and then stores the rest. Your pancreas makes insulin and releases it into your bloodstream.
- Insulin resistance occurs when your body (specifically muscle, fat and liver) stops responding to insulin and too much glucose remains in the blood causing high blood sugar.
- T2D is reversible with functional medicine.
