TYPE 2 DIABETES
Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM) is the predominant form of diabetes, accounting for over 90% of all cases worldwide.
T2DM is the most common form of diabetes, representing over 90% of all cases globally. It develops gradually and often goes undiagnosed, earning the nickname “silent killer.”
The condition occurs when the body has excess glucose in the bloodstream, leading to high blood sugar levels. This happens due to insulin resistance or insufficient insulin production. Prolonged elevated blood sugar can cause damage to blood vessels, leading to complications affecting vital organs like the heart, brain, eyes, nerves, and kidneys.
T2DM poses significant health risks and requires proper management to prevent complications.
