Understanding Diabetes Type 2
CauseType 2 diabetes is due to a combination of lifestyle and genetic factors. Recently, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) or prenatal undernutrition (macro- and micronutrient) was identified as another probable factor.
Environmental toxins may contribute to recent increases in the rate of type 2 diabetes. A weak positive correlation has been found between the concentration in the urine of bisphenol A, a constituent of some plastics, and the incidence of type 2 diabetes
There are many factors which can potentially give rise to, or exacerbate, type 2 diabetes. These include obesity, hypertension, elevated cholesterol (combined hyperlipidemia), and with the condition often termed metabolic syndrome (it is also known as Syndrome X, Reavan's syndrome, or CHAOS). Other causes include acromegaly, Cushing's syndrome, thyrotoxicosis, pheochromocytoma, chronic pancreatitis, cancer, and drugs. Additional factors found to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes include aging, high-fat diets and a less active lifestyle.
There are a lot of information about Diabetes on the internet and for more information I recommend visiting Mercola on Diabetes Type 2.
Please also take a minute to understand how Diabetes is effected by STATIN prescriptions. By taking statin medications it can increase your insulin levels.
