Diabetes

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
