Type 2 Diabetes!

Type 2 Diabetes is a disorder where the glucose level in the blood is high. The reason being, is there is a resistance of insulin by the cells - or...

...the pancreas is not producing enough insulin to transfer the glucose out of the blood and into the cells where energy for the body is created

As the condition progresses, medications may be needed. Long-term complications from high blood sugar can include:

  • increased risk of arterial disease,  including coronary artery disease, 
  • amputation
  • kidney failure
  • renal failure
  • erectile dysfunction 
  • blindness 
  • slow healing wounds, etc

Some symptoms are:

  • frequent urination
  • increased thirst
  • increased hunger
  • fatigue
  • weight loss

One major cause is obesity (especially where fat is stored in the abdomen around internal organs). This reason contributes to 55% of the Diabetics in the US.

Get Thinner – Personalized Fat Loss Program. The principles and strategies behind successful fat loss are explained and a do-it-yourself guide to creating your own personal fat loss program is included. Also contains free downloadable fat loss calculators and progress tracking advice to ensure your fat loss goals will be attained.


Chronic obesity leads to increased insulin resistance, and obesity in the US should not be surprising considering the diet of many Americans.

High-fat diets such as: 

  • fast foods
  • sugars 
  • sodas etc. play large part,...

...especially with children and adolescents. The increased rate of childhood obesity is believed to have led to this overall increase. 

Other causes may include:

chronic pancreatic cancer and drugs. Another factor to consider is with those having first generation relatives with the disease, the risk is much higher for development. Obesity is strongly inherited.

Other studies are showing that environmental toxins may contribute to recent increases.  One link is the concentration in the urine of bisphenol A, which is found in some plastics.

Even the lack of sleep can lead to insulin resistance. Other associated medical conditions are obesity, hypertension, ulcers, elevated cholesterol, etc.
