Lifestyle & Type-2 Diabetes
Diabetes Awareness Week was on the 13-19 November 2012. We’ve heard for years that many of the factors leading to type 2 diabetes are lifestyle related, so why aren’t we listening?
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body either does not produce enough insulin or the cells don’t use the insulin effectively. Anyone can get type 2 diabetes but its highest incidence is in people over 45 years of age. It is also more common among people who are overweight.
