Senior Diabetes is a significant health risk. As we get older, our risk for type 2 diabetes increases. Among those older than 65, approximately 24 percent of men and 18 percent of women are living with diabetes. In the United States, about 1 out of every 4 people over the age of 60 have diabetes.
In a nutshell, type 2 diabetes is a condition characterized by high blood glucose levels that are caused by either a lack of insulin or the body’s inability to use insulin efficiently.
