Type 2 Diabetes

Glucose is a sugar that serves as the fuel that provides energy for the body’s cells. Insulin controls how much glucose the liver produces. Insulin also helps move glucose from the bloodstream into your cells, so your body can effectively use the sugar as a source of energy. Insulin is produced in the pancreas.

Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance—a reduced sensitivity of the body’s tissues to the action of insulin—coupled with a progressive reduction in the ability of pancreatic beta cells to produce insulin. If you have insulin resistance, your pancreas must increase its production of insulin because your body needs more insulin to move glucose into your cells. Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include:

    1. Heredity. Having a close relative with type 2 diabetes is associated with an increased risk of developing it. Investigators have also discovered genetic changes that can increase risk.
    2. Race and ethnicity. Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and American Indians have a greater risk than whites of developing type 2 diabetes.
    3. Overweight and obesity. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese, and the risk of type 2 diabetes rises as a person’s body mass index (BMI) increases.
    4. Location of excess fat. People with abdominal obesity (excess fat inside the belly) are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than are those with extra weight in the hips and thighs.
    5. Metabolic syndrome. This condition is characterized by elevated blood glucose levels, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, low HDL “good” cholesterol, and obesity. It is linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
    6. Prediabetes. People with fasting blood glucose levels higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes have prediabetes. Without lifestyle changes or medication, many people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
    7. Physical inactivity. A sedentary lifestyle is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
    8. Aging. Getting older is another diabetes risk factor, likely because people exercise less, eat more carbohydrates and high-fat foods, and gain weight as they age.
    9. Pregnancy. Women who develop type 2 diabetes during pregnancy—a condition called gestational diabetes—have up to a 50 percent increased risk of developing diabetes later in life.
    10. Medications. Certain medications, such as corticosteroids and thiazide diuretics, increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in people who are predisposed to the disease. Statins may also slightly increase risk.
