The most common form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes, which is characterized by high levels of sugar in the blood. It is caused by a problem in the production of insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas that is needed to move the sugar throughout the body to be used as energy. Risk factors for the disease are family history, genetics, race, age greater than 45 years, poor diet, low activity level, excess body weight, high blood pressure, and history of gestational diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes can be diagnosed through blood tests including fasting blood glucose level, hemoglobin A1c test, oral glucose tolerance test and random non-fasting blood glucose level. Once diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the immediate goal of treatment is lowering your high blood glucose levels and prevent diabetes-related complications.
This can be done through regular exercise and proper diet. Aside from that, regular checkups with the doctor are also necessary for your blood glucose to be monitored and to determine if you are responding well to the treatment plan.
