According to the American Diabetes Association, 34.2 million Americans (10.5% of the population), have Type 2 diabetes. Globally, 462 million individuals are affected by Type 2 diabetes. And these shocking numbers show no sign of slowing down!
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Here's a quick scientific explanation behind Type 2 diabetes. Blood sugar, or glucose, is the main sugar found in your blood. It comes from the food you eat and it is your body's main source of energy. Your blood carries glucose to your body's cells, where it gets converted into energy. Diabetes is a disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. This happens because of two problems that involve a hormone in your body called insulin. First, your body isn't producing enough insulin. This is harmful because insulin regulates the movement of blood sugar into your cells. Second, your cells are responding poorly to insulin and are not absorbing sugar the way they should. This is also known as "insulin resistance." As a result of these two things, too much sugar is circulating in your blood stream. Over time, it builds up and your blood sugar levels become too high. Once your levels rise beyond a certain threshold (which can be shown by a blood test), you are classified as having Type 2 diabetes.
Some Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes include:
Complications of Type 2 Diabetes
The benefit of controlling blood glucose levels is the prevention of complications. These complications can include:
Type 2 Diabetes is often linked to being overweight or inactive. But for diabetics, losing weight can be extra challenging. You feel hungry, thirsty and tired, so you want to eat more and exercise less. For many people the only answer is to get on prescription medications that help to keep blood sugar levels under control. But this is only treating the symptoms of the disease, not fixing the root problem. Another solution is to use a natural product that contains a combination of ingredients that support healthy blood sugar levels, while addressing the problems that keeps people overweight and inactive, taking people out of the "vicious cycle" they're caught in.
