Type 2 Diabetes

The most common form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes. About 90 to 95 percent of people with diabetes have type 2, and one-third of them have not been diagnosed. When type 2 diabetes is diagnosed, the pancreas is usually producing enough insulin, but, for unknown reasons, the body cannot use the insulin effectively, a condition called insulin resistance. After several years, insulin production decreases. The result is the same as for type 1 diabetes: glucose builds up in the blood and the body cannot make efficient use of its main source of fuel.

Type 2 diabetes usually develops in adults age 40 and older and is most common in adults over age 55 (see Signs and Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes).

Unfortunately, as more children become overweight, type 2 diabetes in young people is becoming more common. Here are some tips for parents with overweight children.

Type 2 diabetes is often part of a metabolic syndrome that includes obesity, elevated blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels.

Some ethnic groups have a greater chance of developing diabetes. They include American Indians, African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. You do not get diabetes from eating too much sugar.
