Type II DiabetesThe most common form of diabetes is Type II diabetes, also known as noninsulin-dependent diabetes. It is characterized by insulin resistance because the body either does not produce enough or because the cells ignore the insulin that is being produced. This leads to hyperglycemia and insulin deficiency.
The symptoms of Type II Diabetes can range from blurred vision, frequent infections and fatigue to extreme hunger and increased thirst and urination.
While Type II Diabetes is dangerous, it can be controlled and people can live productive long lives even though they have it. Type II Diabetes can be managed with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise and is thought to be an issue primarily due to a lack of healthy eating and exercise, resulting in obesity.
