Type 2 Diabetes
To understand type 2 diabetes, you must first understand insulin. A hormone produced by the pancreas, insulin helps control glucose (or sugar) levels in the blood.
You probably know type 2 diabetes is a condition in which the body doesn’t produce any or enough insulin or can’t properly use the insulin it produces. Over time, high blood sugar levels can cause major health problems, such as damage to organs, blood vessels, and nerves.
