According to WebMD:

“Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. While not everyone with type 2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes of this form of diabetes.”

When there are problems in the body with the hormone insulin there will be problems with levels of glucose, the body’s energy sugar, in the blood. Glucose is taken out of the food we eat and put into the bloodstream to be distributed out to all the cells of the body for energy. If the cells cannot let the glucose in with the help of the hormone insulin, then it starts to reach higher and higher levels in the blood. When the glucose in the blood is very high, a person will experience severe thirst, constant hunger and frequent urination. Usually, before it reaches that point, there are symptoms like the following:

  1. a certain tiredness or lethargy
  2. mild flu-like symptoms such as body aches or feeling ‘toxic’
  3. digestive and skin problems such as athlete’s foot, dandruff, candida overgrowth in the gut
  4. women may get frequent vaginal yeast infections and UTI or bladder infections
  5. problems sleeping
