Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes Management Class

Do you have Type 2 Diabetes or know someone who has it?

Type 2 diabetes develops over a long period of time (years). During this period of time insulin resistance starts, this is where the insulin is increasingly ineffective at managing the blood glucose levels. As a result of this insulin resistance, the pancreas responds by producing greater and greater amounts of insulin, to try and achieve some degree of management of the blood glucose levels (Diabetes Australia, 2018).

What are some symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes?

  • Being excessively thirsty

  • Passing more urine

  • Feeling tired and lethargic

  • Always feeling hungry

  • Having cuts that heal slowly

  • Itching, skin infections

  • Blurred vision

  • Gradually putting on weight

  • Mood swings

  • Headaches

  • Feeling dizzy

  • Leg cramps

Evidence shows that healthy eating and exercise can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes (Diabetes Australia, 2018).
