Type 2 Diabetes is a serious disease and is a growing health crisis in the U.S. But in most cases, Type 2 Diabetes is preventable—or reversible. By taking simple, common sense steps, you can manage your disease and prevent more serious complications.
Diabetes is a disease that effects your blood sugar—or blood glucose. Glucose is the main source of energy for your body and it comes from the foods you eat. In order to get glucose into your cells your body uses insulin, which is produced in the pancreas. When you don’t have enough insulin—or your body doesn’t process insulin well—glucose builds up in your blood and causes a number of health conditions.
