In a specific chronic condition, glucose, or sugar levels build up in the bloodstream. This chronic condition is known as diabetes.

Glucose is used for energy. In our body insulin is the natural hormone that is responsible to take glucose from the blood to cells.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which body cells do not respond to insulin as they should. In some cases, your body does not remain capable of producing enough insulin.


If remain untreated or uncontrolled, type 2 diabetes can lead to serious complications by increasing blood glucose levels.

What are the Symptoms?

Type 2 diabetes can cause a variety of symptoms because your body cells can’t use insulin properly. They start using alternate resources from organs, tissues, and muscles to work properly. Using alternate resources from these parts can harm them seriously.

As it is a chronic disease, mostly, it develops slowly, symptoms may include:

  • Constant Hunger

  • Fatigue

  • Excessive thirst

  • Dry mouth

  • Blurry vision

  • Lack of energy

  • Weight loss

  • Frequent urination

  • Yeast infections

  • Foot main

Symptoms may include many others depending on the severity and age of diabetes.

What are the Causes?

If you are a patient of type 2 diabetes, your pancreas will wor hard to create more insulin for you as your body will not use it efficiently. This burden will damage the pancreas and it will not make insulin anymore.

Eventually, glucose builds up and your body cells will starve for energy. It may be due to cell signaling, cell dysfunction, or too much production of glucose in the liver.

How to Control It?

Consult your doctor, he will take some tests to diagnose type 2 diabetes and if tests are positive, he will treat accordingly. Take this condition seriously.

Why do you need to develop a healthy-eating plan?

If you have diabetes or prediabetes, your doctor will likely recommend that you see a dietitian to help you develop a healthy-eating plan. The plan helps you control your blood sugar (glucose), manage your weight and control heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats.
When you eat extra calories and fat, your body creates an undesirable rise in blood glucose. If blood glucose isn't kept in check, it can lead to serious problems, such as a high blood glucose level (hyperglycemia) that, if persistent, may lead to long-term complications, such as nerve, kidney and heart damage.You can help keep your blood glucose level in a safe range by making healthy food choices and tracking your eating habits.
For most people with type 2 diabetes, weight loss also can make it easier to control blood glucose and offers a host of other health benefits. If you need to lose weight, a diabetes diet provides a well-organized, nutritious way to reach your goal safely.
