Diabetes or Type 2 late onset diabetes is a growing concern amongst health professionals as it is presenting to clinic earlier and more frequently than ever before.
Type 1 diabetes is when the Pancreas is unable to produce insulin and you will need to take insulin to correct this on an ongoing basis. This is usually identified at a very early age and monitored throughout life.
More affected by lifestyle, excess weight and dietary factors is Diabetes Type 2, or insulin resistance, or syndrome x. These are when the pancreas does still produce insulin but the cells of your body have become resistant to picking up the insulin and therefore present with the same concerns of someone with Diabetes Type 1. . Symptoms include:
Slow wound healing
Tingling or Numbness in the feet
People with type 2 diabetes can usually be controlled by dietary modification and exercise with insulin treatment not normally being necessary. While obesity is a major factor a weight reduction programme may be all that is necessary to control it, if you would like help with weight management or further concerns with diabetes prevention or control please do not hesitate to get in touch.
