WHAT IS TYPE TWO DIABETES?
Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are two different diseases. Type 1 refers to the underproduction of insulin while type 2 refers to the overproduction of insulin.
Insulin is a necessary function of the human body. It facilitates the transport and storage of glucose in your liver, muscles as well as your organs. This usually happens in between meals.
The overproduction of insulin causes the glucose to remain in the blood. This excess glucose (sugar) in your blood is what is linked with the onset of type 2 diabetes.
