Type 2

Type 2 diabetes, which affects around 90% of people with diabetes, is caused when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or the cells in the body don’t react in a normal way to insulin. This means that blood sugar levels become too high.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It’s estimated that round 58% of cases could be delayed or prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle and it’s often linked to being overweight.
