What is diabetes type 2 and why is it a problem?




Diabetes type 2 is a chronic condition that affects how your body uses glucose (sugar) as a source of energy. Glucose is the main fuel for your cells, organs, and tissues. It comes from the food you eat, especially carbohydrates (starches and sugars).


Normally, when you eat carbohydrates, they are broken down into glucose in your digestive system. Then, glucose enters your bloodstream, where it is transported to your cells. To enter your cells, glucose needs a hormone called insulin. Insulin is produced by your pancreas, a gland located behind your stomach.


However, in diabetes type 2, your body either does not produce enough insulin, or does not use it properly. This is called insulin resistance. As a result, glucose builds up in your bloodstream, and your cells do not get enough energy. This leads to high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia), which can cause various symptoms and complications.


Some of the common symptoms of diabetes type 2 are:


  • Increased thirst and urination



  • Increased hunger and weight loss



  • Fatigue and weakness



  • Blurred vision and headaches



  • Numbness or tingling in your hands or feet



  • Slow healing of wounds and infections



  • Dark patches of skin around your neck or armpits (acanthosis nigricans)



Some of the serious complications of diabetes type 2 are:


  • Heart disease and stroke



  • Kidney disease and failure



  • Nerve damage and neuropathy



  • Eye damage and blindness



  • Foot problems and amputation



  • Gum disease and tooth loss



  • Sexual dysfunction and infertility



Diabetes type 2 is a problem because it affects millions of people worldwide, and it is one of the leading causes of death and disability. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, there were 463 million people with diabetes globally, and 90% of them had diabetes type 2. By 2045, this number is expected to rise to 700 million. Diabetes also caused 4.2 million deaths in 2019, and was responsible for at least $760 billion in health expenditure.


How to diagnose and treat diabetes type 2?




The diagnosis of diabetes type 2 is based on the measurement of your blood sugar levels. There are different tests and criteria that can be used to diagnose diabetes type 2, such as:


  • Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test: This test measures your blood sugar level after you have fasted (not eaten or drunk anything except water) for at least eight hours. A normal FPG level is less than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L). A FPG level of 100-125 mg/dL (5.6-6.9 mmol/L) indicates prediabetes, a condition that increases your risk of developing diabetes type 2. A FPG level of 126 mg/dL (7 mmol/L) or higher on two separate occasions indicates diabetes type 2.



  • Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT): This test measures your blood sugar level before and after you drink a liquid that contains glucose. A normal OGTT result is less than 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L) two hours after drinking the glucose solution. An OGTT result of 140-199 mg/dL (7.8-11 mmol/L) indicates prediabetes. An OGTT result of 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) or higher on two separate occasions indicates diabetes type 2.



  • Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test: This test measures the percentage of hemoglobin, a protein in your red blood cells, that has glucose attached to it. Hemoglobin carries oxygen from your lungs to your tissues. The higher your blood sugar level, the more glucose attaches to your hemoglobin, and the higher your HbA1c level. A normal HbA1c level is less than 5.7%. An HbA1c level of 5.7-6.4% indicates prediabetes. An HbA1c level of 6.5% or higher on two separate occasions indicates diabetes type 2.



The treatment of diabetes type 2 aims to lower your blood sugar level and prevent or delay the complications of the condition. The treatment may include:


```html friends, co-workers, or hosts when attending social events or gatherings (such as letting them know that you have diabetes type 2 and what foods you can or cannot eat, bringing your own food or drinks if necessary, thanking them for their support and understanding), having fun and enjoying your food and social life without compromising your blood sugar level and overall health (such as trying new foods and cuisines, exploring new places and cultures, celebrating special occasions and milestones).


Conclusion




Diabetes type 2 is a chronic condition that affects how your body uses glucose as a source of energy. It can cause various symptoms and complications that can impair your quality of life and increase your risk of death and disability. However, diabetes type 2 can also be diagnosed, treated, prevented, and reversed with some lifestyle changes and habits that can lower your blood sugar level and improve your overall health. You can also live well with diabetes type 2 by following some tips and strategies that can help you manage your blood sugar level and cope with stress and emotions. You can also enjoy your food and social life without feeling guilty or deprived.

Q1: What is the difference between diabetes type 1 and type 2?




A1: Diabetes type 1 and type 2 are both chronic conditions that affect how your body uses glucose as a source of energy. However, they have different causes and characteristics. Diabetes type 1 is an autoimmune disease that occurs when your immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas. As a result, your body does not produce any insulin at all. Diabetes type 1 usually develops in childhood or adolescence, but it can also occur at any age. People with diabetes type 1 need to take insulin injections or use an insulin pump for life to control their blood sugar level.


Diabetes type 2 is a metabolic disorder that occurs when your body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use it properly. This is called insulin resistance. As a result, your body cannot move glucose from your bloodstream into your cells. Diabetes type 2 usually develops in adulthood, but it can also occur in children or adolescents. People with diabetes type 2 may need to take oral drugs or injectable drugs to lower their blood sugar level. Some people with diabetes type 2 may also need to take insulin injections or use an insulin pump.


Q2: What are the signs and symptoms of high or low blood sugar?




A2: High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) are both dangerous conditions that can occur in people with diabetes type 2.

  • Increased thirst and urination
