Type 2 Diabetes
90 out of 100 diabetics suffer from Type 2, and they are mostly above 40.
Type 2 diabetes is way more common, accounting for about 90 percent of all
incidences of diabetes, and mostly shows symptoms in people above 40, which
gives it the name adult-onset diabetes.
In this condition, either the pancreas produces insufficient insulin or the
cells develop a resistance to insulin, not allowing it to bind to the receptor
molecules on the cell membrane that would allow the passage of glucose inside
Obesity, especially visceral fat, can inhibit the cells’ ability to bind to the
insulin. And because active muscles use up most of the glucose in the body,
physical inactivity that leads to less vigorous use of muscles also makes the
cells resistant to glucose intake.
