Type 2 diabetes prevention

Posted on February 20th, 2012 No Comments

Nearly 23. 6 million people suffer from Type 2 diabetes and the number is continuing to grow. According to data from the National Institutes of Health, nearly 6 million of the people that have the disease have not been diagnosed with it at this time.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when a person’s body is unable to break down glucose into energy that is needed. Usually, insulin is used to help glucose enter into fat, liver and muscle cells. When a person has diabetes, the person either does not have enough insulin or the body does not use it correctly.

Because of this, glucose levels in the blood raise. Diet and lack of exercise can be a cause for type 2 diabetes because obesity is a main factor, which is why having a healthier lifestyle can help someone prevent type 2 diabetes. A few tips on healthy eating include, making smaller meal portions, making half of your plate fruits and vegetables and drinking fat -free or 1 percent-fat dairy products.

Recently, the use of the type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, has been linked to the development of bladder cancer. If this has happened to you, you need representation on your side. Contact the Actos lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today.
