Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes, once called non-insulin dependent diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes, affecting 90 percent to 95 percent of the 26 million Americans with diabetes. Individuals with type 2 diabetes are resistant to the effects of insulin. Although the pancreatic beta cells produce insulin, the quantities produced are insufficient to maintain normal glucose metabolism.
