Living Well with Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes is a lifelong condition in which the body does not produce enough of or make proper use of insulin, a hormone needed to control the conversion of starchy food into energy in the form of glucose. This results in dangerously high levels of glucose in the blood which, if left uncontrolled can have serious long-term health complications such as blindness, limb amputations, kidney failure and an increased risk of strokes and heart attacks.
