Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes glucose (blood sugar). With type 2 diabetes, the body either does not produce enough insulin or the body resists the effect of insulin on processing glucose.
Type 2 diabetes symptoms include: feeling of extreme thirst and/or hunger- even after eating or drinking, extreme fatigue, blurry vision
slow healing cuts and bruises, difficulty maintaining weight
tingling pain and/or numbness in hands and feet
Diagnosis and Interventions
Type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed by different types of blood glucose tests measuring how the body processes drugs in various scenarios:
Random blood sugar
Fasting blood sugar
Oral glucose tolerance test
Type 2 diabetes is treated by lifestyle changes including healthy eating and exercise, and in some instances medication or insulation therapy. Common medications include, but are not limited to: Metformin, Sulfonylureas DPP-4 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists
