"Up to 85% of type 2 diabetes is associated with poor lifestyle, such as being overweight or overweight, eating an unhealthy diet and not getting enough physical activity – all can increase the likelihood of getting the dangerous visceral fat that leads to insulin resistance. (Visceral fat is the fat that accumulates around vital organs.)
"Often people think that diabetes avoids sugar. Of course, it comes in a body struggling to cope with the level of blood sugar, which will help – but in Type 2 diabetes it is more about reducing the dangerous visceral fat, which often means that means it comes down to a healthy weight.
"Initially, and for many years, type 2 diabetes can not have any noticeable symptoms at all, which makes it difficult to diagnose if it is not retrieved through routine health screening. Diagnosis is often a shock. Research from the International Diabetes Association shows that at the time when they diagnosed, many patients may have increased insulin resistance for up to 10 years.
