Type-2Diabetes is a metabolic problem characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels that result from defects in insulin secretion.
We don’t want to call type-2 Diabetes a disease, because it actually is a symptom of Insulin dysfunction.
Diabetes mellitus, commonly referred to as diabetes was first identified as a problem associated with "sweet urine," and excessive muscle loss in the ancient world.
Main Cause of Type-2 Diabetes (Insulin Resistance Diabetes)
Poor Insulin Management is the major cause of type-2 Diabetes. Because of our high consumption of carbohydrates, the pancreas releases too much insulin over a long period of time, bathing the cells with insulin.
Inactivity is the other cause of type-2 Diabetes.
The cells then become resistant to insulin which causes blood glucose levels, as well as insulin levels, to rise.

(see Ailments caused by Diabetes)
Normally, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin lowers the blood glucose level.
When the blood glucose elevates (for example, after eating food), insulin is released from the pancreas to normalize the glucose level.

The early symptoms of untreated diabetes are related to elevated blood sugar levels, and lots of glucose in the urine. High amounts of glucose in the urine can cause increased urine output and lead to dehydration.
Dehydration causes increased thirst and water consumption. The inability of insulin to perform normally has effects on protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism.
Insulin is an anabolic hormone, that is, one that encourages storage of fat and protein. A relative or absolute insulin deficiency eventually leads to weight loss despite an increase in appetite.
Some untreated diabetes patients also complain of
Patients with diabetes are prone to developing
Fluctuations in blood glucose levels can lead to
Extremely elevated glucose levels can lead to:
Over time, diabetes can lead to
These types of damage are the result of damage to small vessels, referred to as micro vascular disease.
Diabetes is also an important factor in accelerating the hardening and narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis), leading to
This is referred to as macro vascular disease.
Diabetes affects approximately 8% of the population in the Western World.
