What Is Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes means your blood sugar (blood glucose) level is very high. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps deliver glucose energy to your cells.
Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease that keeps your body from consuming insulin. People with type 2 diabetes are called insulin resistance.
Those who are middle-aged or older are the most likely to have this type of diabetes. This was called adult-onset diabetes. But type 2 diabetes also affects children and adolescents, mainly due to childhood obesity.

Causes of Type 2 Diabetes:-
Your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin. It helps your cells get glucose, a type of sugar that you eat in energy. People with type 2 diabetes make insulin, but their cells do not use it as much as they should.
First, your pancreas produces more insulin to get glucose into your cells. But in the end, it can’t keep up, and glucose builds up in your blood.
