A person with type 2 diabetes has insulin resistance, meaning their pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body doesn't react properly to insulin.
Insulin is used by the body to manage glucose, or sugar, levels in the blood and to convert glucose into energy. Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include being over 40, having a family history of diabetes, being of South Asian, African-Caribbean or Middle Eastern origin or being overweight or obese.How type 2 diabetes affects the bodyWhen glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the cells are not able to function properly.
The parents of a little girl with diabetes were alerted to a dangerous blood sugar drop by her medical dog - who was more than FIVE MILES away. Incredible picture shows pet dog Jedi saving boy called Luke's life Hero really lived up to his name when Sadie was attending her special needs class at Deerfield Elementary School in Cedar Hills while Hero was at home in Pleasant Grove, Utah. At present, scientists do not know exactly what causes the body's immune system to attack the beta cells, but they believe that autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors, possibly viruses, are involved. Type 1 diabetes develops most often in children and young adults, but the disorder can appear at any age. Symptoms include increased thirst and urination, constant hunger, weight loss, blurred vision, and extreme fatigue.
In Type 2 diabetes, not enough insulin is produced or the insulin that is made does not work properly.
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. Insulin is a peptide hormone secreted by the pancreas in response to increases in blood sugar, usually following a meal. After a meal, the amount of insulin secreted into the blood increases as blood sugar rises.
If these nutrients are shuttled primarily into muscle cells, then the muscles grow and body fat is managed. Without enough insulin, you lose all of the anabolic effects, since there is not enough insulin to transport or store energy or nutrients. Continual elevation of insulin leads to large amounts of fat gain and risk for cardiovascular disease. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by obesity (particularly central deposition adiposity, or fat around the middle and deep in the abdominal cavity), cardiovascular disease, systemic inflammation, and the poor ability of muscles to store nutrients, which leads to muscle wasting and fat storage as well as nutrients circulating in the blood. Insulin resistance, and its associated metabolic syndrome, is a step along the road to type 2 diabetes. Due to the anabolic power of insulin, many over-fat individuals want to avoid insulin release. You need insulin, but the trick is to learn how to balance the anabolic effects in muscle tissue against the fat storage effects. Aim for a moderate carbohydrate consumption (~40% of diet) with an emphasis on fibrous carbohydrates like vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
Investigate chromium and alpha lipoic acid, and make sure intake is adequate (but not excessive). While the glycemic and insulin indices of many foods are similar, some foods cause unexpected responses.
The purpose of nutrient timing is to maximize insulin’s anabolic effects while minimizing its other problematic side effects. Some epidemiologic studies have found that breast-feeding is associated with a reduced risk for developing insulin-dependent diabetes. Supplementing infant diets with gluten-containing foods before 3 months of age may encourage pancreatic dysfunction.
Asian and African populations who are physically active and follow diets low in fat and high in fibrous carbohydrates have lower incidence of diabetes than those living the “Western” lifestyle.


The American Academy of Pediatrics stated that avoiding early exposure to cow’s milk may reduce the risk of developing antibodies to cow’s milk protein and type 1 diabetes. Alpha lipoic acid may increase glucose uptake in the cell by recruiting glucose transporters. Some people who are not obese by traditional measures are still at risk for insulin resistance anyway, particularly individuals with one or more close relatives who are diabetic, as well as many people of South Asian ethnic origin. Many bodybuilders have experimented with injecting insulin in an attempt to maximize insulin’s anabolic effects.

They’re probably better than 90% of the seminars we’ve ever attended on the subjects of exercise and nutrition (and probably better than a few we’ve given ourselves, too). Moment adorable Labrador puppy Jedi saved the life of sleeping his seven-year-old owner Luke as he slipped into a diabetic comaJedi is a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD)A trained to monitor the smell of human breath. This is the moment a dog saved his seven-year-old owner's life.Luke Nuttall, from California, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was just two-years-old. But even after Jedi rushed to wake Dorrie, she explains, the meter seemed to show Luke's blood sugar levels were fine.A However, Jedi picked up on the change. Diabetes Alert Dogs (DADs) are trained to monitor the air for a change in smell on the human breath, which specifically relates to a drop in blood sugar levels.A If they detect a drop, they paw at their owner, or run to fetch help.
Type 1 diabetes is when the pancreas doesn't produce any insulin and causes a person's blood sugar level, known as glucose, to become too high. Sadie's mum Michelle Anderson Brooks was at home with Hero when the pup started to wail and agitate.
An autoimmune disease results when the body's system for fighting infection (the immune system) turns against a part of the body. Symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop over a short period, although beta cell destruction can begin years earlier. If not diagnosed and treated with insulin, a person can lapse into a life-threatening diabetic coma, also known as diabetic ketoacidosis. Type 2 diabetes is often part of a metabolic syndrome that includes obesity, elevated blood pressure, and high levels of blood lipids.
If these nutrients are shuttled primarily into fat cells, then muscle mass is unchanged and body fat is increased.
Since glucose is then poorly stored, people end up with both high circulating blood insulin and high circulating glucose. This can be done by increasing insulin sensitivity in the muscle while decreasing insulin sensitivity in the fat cells. In theory, it may help manage blood sugar, but trials using chromium have shown mixed results.

The build-up of sugar in the blood leads to excess glucose in the urine because the kidneys can’t deal with the high sugar levels.
In diabetes, the immune system attacks the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas and destroys them.
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. Once insulin is in the blood, it shuttles glucose (carbohydrates), amino acids, and blood fats into the cells of the body.
He jumped off the bed and half on and would not budge when I told him to get back up.A 'I got out of bed, he bowed, Luke's CGM said he was 100 steady.
Keep in mind that a low glycemic diet can result in better fasted insulin and glucose, but results have been mixed. So I told Jedi we would watch and see, he bowed again (Bowing is his low alert), I told him to get up on the bed, he held his ground didn't budge, he refused.
When the kidneys lose the glucose through the urine, a large amount of water is also lost, causing dehydration.Diabetic coma (hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic non-ketotic syndrome). When a person with type 2 diabetes becomes severely dehydrated and is not able to drink enough fluids to make up for the fluid losses, they may develop this life-threatening complication.Damage to the body. The opposite issue - high blood sugar above 200 - will see the dog instead paw their right hand.
Over time, the high glucose levels in the blood may damage the nerves and predispose a person to atherosclerosis (narrowing) of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke, and damage the eyes and kidneys.Symptoms of type 2 diabetesType 2 diabetes can cause serious health complications. Even pre-diabetes can increase the chance of heart disease just like type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
It’s important to get diabetes testing and start a treatment plan early to prevent serious diabetes complications.Type 2 diabetes may not be diagnosed until health complications have occurred. Most often, with type 2 diabetes there are no diabetes symptoms or a very gradual development of the above symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
However, those at highest risk of the disease are those who are obese or overweight, women who have had gestational diabetes, people with family members who have type 2 diabetes and people who have metabolic syndrome (a cluster of problems that include high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low good "HDL" cholesterol and a high bad "LDL" cholesterol and high blood pressure).
