There are two types of diabetes, and they really are two quite different diseases.

In type 1, or insulin-dependent diabetes, insulin injections are needed.

But in type 2, or non-insulin-dependent diabetes, most people can keep their condition under control with just diet and medication.

This type of diabetes is actually much more common than the insulin-dependent type.

How do I find out which type of diabetes I have?

Your doctor will tell you what type of diabetes you have and what you need to do.

One of the greatest contributors to the type 2 diabetes epidemic is reckoned to be obesity brought on by our modern lifestyles.

Are you eating yourself into diabetes type 2?

Check if you have these 4 eating habits that could contribute to obesity and possibly make you part of the type 2 diabetes epidemic.

1) Unconscious eating… No, I don’t mean ‘sleep-eating’. This is automatic eating without any conscious thought of what is happening.

How often do you do something else while eating?

Do you eat while watching TV, reading a book, reading a magazine or newspaper, listening to music, a radio show or conversation?

Certain factors that contribute to the development of diabetes include:


Heredity is a major factor. That diabetes can be inherited has been known for centuries. However, the pattern of inheritance is not fully understood.

Statistics indicates that those with a family history of the disease have a higher risk of developing diabetes than those without such a background.

The risk factor is 25 to 33 percent more.

One reason why diabetes, especially type-2 diabetes runs in the family is because of the diabetes gene.

Diabetes and care. There cannot be a better combination of words in the world of diabetes!

Your doctor may examine and advise you on diabetes during your visits to his clinic.

But you are your own doctor for 24 hours all through the months and years with diabetes.

How many times a day do you think about the word diabetes?

You can fight it with proper care.

The two words that stand uppermost in diabetes care are diet and exercise!

If you are disciplined in these two areas, half of your battle is won!
