Approximately 18 million people in the United States have Diabetes. African-Americans, Latino-Americans, Native Americans, and Asian-Americans have a higher incidence of type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes occurs when the body does not make enough insulin or when the insulin you do make does not work as well as it should. Under normal circumstances, the food you eat is converted into glucose (a kind of sugar) and then transported to your bloodstream. Insulin, which is produced by your pancreas, helps to move glucose from your bloodstream into your cells.

Your cells then utilize glucose as an energy source necessary for daily living. In patients with diabetes, the insulin does not effectively transport glucose into the cells. Therefore, it remains in the bloodstream and causes your blood sugar levels to escalate. If left untreated, such high blood glucose levels can result in complications that affect your vision, heart, kidneys and circulation.

Some Facts About Diabetes
People with Type II Diabetes may have a difficult time losing weight. Nearly 90% of people with newly diagnosed Type II diabetes are overweight, according to the American Diabetes Association.
Many people with pre-diabetes display no diabetic symptom. However, you might experience the following: unusual thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, or fatigue for no apparent caus In these instances, you should see a physician and get tested. According to the American Diabetes Association, if you are 45 years of age or older, especially if your BMI (body mass index) is 25 or higher, screening for pre-diabetes is recommended. If you are under 45 years but you are overweight and have any of the above risk factors, testing is also indicated.
When people with Type 2 diabetes achieve even modest weight loss (as low as 2.5% of total weight) they reduce risk factors for the heart. Ideally, however, overweight patients should strive for 15% weight loss or better, which can have major positive effects on insulin sensitivity, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

According to the CDC, lifestyle modification, that is, a healthy diet and a fitness plan, should be your first choice to prevent or delay diabetes, due to the benefits of weight loss and physical activity. This special "channel" by is dedicated to providing useful information and resources for that purpose.
