When body's immune system destroys insulin producing cells, there is no insulin to move glucose out of the blood. This one can't be prevented.
In this type, insulin is made in the body but it does not get utilized properly, leading to build-up of excess sugar in the blood. A combination of factors such as genetics, ethnicity, obesity, family history and unhealthy lifestyle increases the probability of developing diabetes type 2.
We at Indus Health Plus believe that being non-diabetic should be celebrated and adapted as a way of life by every individual. We refer to such individuals as Type Zero. They are the ones who believe in the concept of adapting a healthy lifestyle to ensure they continue living diabetes free.
Celebrate being a Type Zero!
