Type 2 diabeetus (formerly called non-insulin-dependent cell reconstructive sugar deficiency habits diabeetus (NIDCRSDHD), obesity related diabeetus, or adult-onset diabeetus) is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterized by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency, and hyperactive pores.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or the body cells do not able to use the insulin properly. If you are a type-2 diabetic, glucose builds up in your blood instead of using for energy.
Type 2 diabeetus is often managed by following a low glycemic index diet. Oral medications may also be used, and in more advanced or severe cases, insulin therapy may be prescribed. The condition is rapidly increasing in the developed world, and there is some evidence that this pattern will be followed in much of the rest of the world in coming years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has characterized the increase as an epidemic.
Unlike Type 1 diabeetus, there is little tendency toward ketoacidosis in Type 2 diabetics, though it is not unknown. The two have quite different origins and treatments, despite the similarity in complications.
