Notes

Abstract: If the Center for Disease Control (CDC) predictions are accurate then by the year 2050 between 40 to 50 million U.S. residents will have the debilitating disease known as type II diabetes. Type II diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Type II diabetes occurs when the body cannot generate enough insulin. Insulin is important for our bodies to function because it is needed for the body to be able to use glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin causes the cells to absorb glucose. With diabetes, the body has trouble using glucose for energy. As a result, the glucose level in the blood becomes too high. There are some underlying factors such as family and age that predispose one to developing type II diabetes. This does not mean that certain actions cannot be taken to prevent or live a healthy fulfilling life with diabetes. Moderate exercise and eating healthy are two lifestyle changes that greatly impact conquering this epidemic.
