Type 2 Diabetes is a long-term metabolic disorder that is characterised by high blood sugar, and relative lack of and resistance to a hormone called insulin. Insulin is made in the pancraes, which turns glucose into energy. Without the required amount, long-term complications can include things like heart disease, strokes and diabetic retinopathy, which can result in blindness, kidney failure and poor blood flow in the limbs - something that could eventually result in amputation.


Genetics only account for a small amount of risk and therefore this does not mean you are guaranteed to get it. Basically, the more risk factors that apply to you, the higher the chances are of you getting it. Lifestyle factors are usually far more important as contributing aspects to the development of the disease, include getting little or no exercise, smoking, stress, and sleeping too little or too much.
