Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that can develop when there are high levels of sugar in your blood. This occurs due to insulin impairment. Insulin is a hormone produced in your pancreas, but when the pancreas doesn't produce enough or when insulin uptake is poor, the cells in your body will not absorb enough sugar from your bloodstream. High levels of blood sugar can contribute to you developing some serious health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, nerve damage, kidney disease, eye disease and infections.
Hello. My name is Diana and I am 65 years old. As the years have gone by, I have realised that I need to take better care of my body. As a young woman, I used to spend a lot of time hanging around bars, drinking too much and smoking too many cigarettes. When I finally married, I would sit around in the house all day and eat plates of food. I put on a lot of weight and started to experience a range of health problems. Thankfully, I eventually visited my local health care clinic and received the help I needed to become a healthy human being. I was so pleased with the treatment and I learnt so much that I decided to start a blog.
