7 Signs of Type 2 Diabetes
About 30 million Americans suffer from type 2 diabetes, or about 9% of the population.
Type 2 diabetes is a result from your body not being able to use the human hormone insulin correctly in your daily life. Insulin is needed for the utilization of glucose (sugar) by your body’s cells via one’s blood. Once in your cells that glucose is used for energy. When you don’t have enough insulin glucose accumulates in the blood instead of being used by the cells. Often type 2 diabetes symptoms are unrecognized or attributed to other causes.
