    Diabetes Type 2

    Also called: Type 2 Diabetes

    Diabetes means your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth.

    You have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes if you are older, obese, have a family history of diabetes, or do not exercise. Having prediabetes also increases your risk. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes.

    The symptoms of type 2 diabetes appear slowly. Some people do not notice symptoms at all. The symptoms can include

    • Being very thirsty
    • Urinating often
    • Feeling very hungry or tired
    • Losing weight without trying
    • Having sores that heal slowly
    • Having blurry eyesight

    Blood tests can show if you have diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your diabetes. Many people can manage their diabetes through healthy eating, physical activity, and blood glucose testing. Some people also need to take diabetes medicines.

    Diabetic Foot

    If you have diabetes, your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Over time, this can damage your nerves or blood vessels. Nerve damage from diabetes can cause you to lose feeling in your feet. You may not feel a cut, a blister or a sore. Foot injuries such as these can cause ulcers and infections. Serious cases may even lead to amputation. Damage to the blood vessels can also mean that your feet do not get enough blood and oxygen. It is harder for your foot to heal, if you do get a sore or infection.

    You can help avoid foot problems. First, control your blood sugar levels. Good foot hygiene is also crucial:

    • Check your feet every day
    • Wash your feet every day
    • Keep the skin soft and smooth
    • Smooth corns and calluses gently
    • If you can see, reach, and feel your feet, trim your toenails regularly. If you cannot, ask a foot doctor (podiatrist) to trim them for you.
    • Wear shoes and socks at all times
    • Protect your feet from hot and cold
    • Keep the blood flowing to your feet
