Type II Diabetes

Who Does Type II Diabetes Affect"This can affect anyone with bad eating and exercising habits

What is it"Type II Diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce enough insulin for normal bodily function. Type II Diabetes is less dangerous than Type I. Most people with Type I Diabetes need to inject insulin into themselves using a pump of some sort. People with Type II still need to watch their sugar intake, but not nearly as much as people with Type I.

Are There Any Other Types"There is Type I Diabetes, in which the pancreas produces little to no insulin.. Those with Type I Diabetes need to get an insulin pump in order to keep a steady blood sugar level. Type I Diabetes is a more fatal version of Type II Diabetes. However, both diseases are detrimental to the body and should not be taken lightly.
