  • 1. ***Click on picture and listen to T2D experiences (NY Times) Type 2 Diabetes Causes Symptoms Treatment I have found many articles online covering: Type 2 diabetes causes symptoms treatment. Each one offered insight into this diseases called Diabetes Mellitus *The American Diabetes Association’s Fast Facts in March 2013 states: Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes 79 million Americans have prediabetes 1.9 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year Nearly 10% of the entire U.S. population has diabetes, including over 25% of seniors As many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050 if present trends continue The economic cost of diagnosed diabetes in the U.S. is $245 billion per year We hear and see numbers like this all the time, but what does it mean? What is Type 2 diabetes and what can we do about it? Type 2 diabetes once called non-insulin-dependent diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes, affecting 90% to 95% of the 26 million Americans with diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes Causes Symptoms Treatment – What Is It? Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, the bodies of people with type 2 diabetes make insulin. However, either their pancreas does not make enough insulin or the insulin is not being properly used by their body. This is called insulin resistance. When there isn’t enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can’t get into the body’s cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the body’s cells are not able to function properly. Other problems associated with the buildup of glucose in the blood include: Damage to the body. Over time, the high glucose levels in the blood can damage the nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys, and heart and lead to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke. Dehydration. The buildup of sugar in the blood can cause an increase in urination, causing dehydration.
  • 2. Diabetic coma (hyperosmolar nonketotic diabetic coma). Diabetic coma occurs when the blood sugar gets too high and the body becomes severely dehydrated When a person with type 2 diabetes becomes very ill or severely dehydrated and is not able to drink enough fluids to make up for the fluid losses, they may develop this life-threatening complication. Type 2 Diabetes Causes Symptoms Treatment – Causes Although it is more common than type 1 diabetes, the causes of type 2 diabetes are less well understood. It is likely caused by many things. Type 2 diabetes can run in families, but the how it is inherited is not known Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. While not everyone with type 2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes of this form of diabetes. It is also responsible for nearly 95% of diabetes cases in the United States, according to the CDC Type 2 Diabetes Causes Symptoms Treatment – Symptoms **From Mayo Clinic Type 2 diabetes symptoms may develop slowly. In fact, you can have type 2 diabetes for years and not know it. Look for: Increased thirst and frequent urination. Excess sugar building up in your bloodstream causes fluid to be pulled from the tissues. This may leave you thirsty. As a result, you may drink — and urinate — more than usual. Increased hunger. Without enough insulin to move sugar into your cells, your muscles and organs become depleted of energy. This triggers intense hunger. Weight loss. Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, you may lose weight. Without the ability to metabolize glucose, the body uses alternative fuels stored in muscle and fat. Calories are lost as excess glucose is released in the urine. Fatigue. If your cells are deprived of sugar, you may become tired and irritable. Blurred vision. If your blood sugar is too high, fluid may be pulled from the lenses of your eyes. This may affect your ability to focus clearly. Slow-healing sores or frequent infections. Type 2 diabetes affects your ability to heal and resist infections. Areas of darkened skin. Some people with type 2 diabetes have patches of dark, velvety skin in the folds and creases of their bodies — usually in the armpits and neck. This condition, called acanthosis nigricans, may be a sign of insulin resistance. Type 2 Diabetes Causes Symptoms Treatment – Treatment The goal of treatment is two-fold: Lower your high blood glucose levels. Long-term goals are to prevent having the problems from diabetes. The key to treat and manage type 2 diabetes are: Activity and Nutrition. Learning diabetes management skills will help you live well with diabetes. These skills help prevent health problems and the need for medical care. Skills include: How to test and record your blood glucose What to eat and when
