Diabetes occurs when blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are elevated beyond normal levels. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2, each with distinct underlying causes. While Type 2 diabetes is typically associated with adults, its prevalence among younger individuals is increasing due to factors like obesity.

In Type 2 diabetes, the body produces insulin, but it fails to function effectively. Consequently, glucose derived from food is not properly absorbed by the body's cells, leading to elevated blood sugar levels. Despite the presence of high glucose levels, individuals with Type 2 diabetes often experience fatigue and tiredness since their cells are unable to utilize glucose as a fuel source.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that cannot be completely cured, but it can be effectively managed through lifestyle modifications and medication. The doctor offers guidance on lifestyle changes to control Type 2 diabetes, addresses the causes of rising diabetes rates, discusses diabetes symptoms, and provides other pertinent information on the condition.
