Type 2 diabetes occurs when not enough insulin is produced by the body for it to function properly, or when the body’s cells do not react to insulin. It is far more common than type 1 diabetes, and around 90% of all adults in the UK with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.
If you have type 2 diabetes, you can usually control your symptoms by simply eating a healthy diet and monitoring your blood glucose level. However, as type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition, you may eventually need to take insulin medication.
Type 2 diabetes is often associated with obesity. Obesity-related diabetes is sometimes referred to as maturity-onset diabetes because it is more common in older people.
