is a disease in which a patient suffers from high blood sugar levels. High sugar levels are a direct result of low or no production of insulin in the pancreas. Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas and is responsible for maintenance of glucose levels in the blood. With low or no production of insulin from the pancreas, the body cannot correctly store and use sugar and carbohydrates from ingested foods. One other cause for Diabetes is that while the pancreas is producing insulin and in the correct amounts, the cells of the body are reacting incorrectly to the insulin and thus the sugars aren’t correctly processed.

was previously more commonly known as “insulin resistant diabetes” or “non-insulin dependent diabetes”.  Type II Diabetes is the most common of the three types accounting for approximately 90% of all diabetic diagnosis. Symptoms of Type II Diabetes are very similar to that of Type I Diabetes but are less pronounced and may not show for years.
