It is genetic disorder

Concerned in reply to rvmasalvad

To question this rvmasalvad, we evolved for millions of years with little evidence of the disorder until the adoption of agriculture, then diabetes has doubled over the last twenty years?

Some reasons for type 2 diabetes:

Lack of exercise

Excess body weight (overweight/ obesity)

Unhealthy diet

High blood pressure (hypertension)

High cholesterol level (HDL less than 35 mg/dL; Triglycerides more than 250 mg/dL)

Family history

Genetic influence


In Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM), the body is not able to use insulin in the right way. This is called insulin resistance.

As type 2 diabetes gets worse, the pancreas may make less and less insulin. This is called insulin deficiency.

Pl add stress to the list.

Too many carbohydrates.

Not everyone gets diabetes, but we should remember that diabetes is the extreme end of a spectrum that starts with the disruption of insulin levels and the accumulation of visceral fat.

Insulin resistance is rife in the 'modern' world. The numbers of people with associated conditions such as PCOS, dyslipidaemia, osteoporosis, and arthritis are vast, often thinking it's genetic, consoling themselves that their blood glucose is normal, unaware of the harm within.

Yes, another symptom, as are a large waist, high triglycerides, and a high VLDL to HDL ratio

Animals have been following the same ‘life style’ all along!

They search for food and consume them uncooked at source fresh! Any one cattle left under open grazing in the ranges never heard of suffering from any deficiencies similar to Type 1 or 2! Their life style goes on the way it started.

We human, In the name of civilization have given up all the physical exertions weather for searching foods , sheltering, procreation anything you name it-----all the evils we are suffering from are our own makings.

The ‘marketing’ in its highest forms is able to convince the market ‘what is bad’ as ‘not bad’- .....the fast foods, cosmetics, exercise equipment’s … and the like to substitute the ‘original endowments given to human’ ……and finally the role of IT…. You simply move your eye lids only--- it is done.

Its destructive path seems irreversible!

Things like, eating late, to much sugar, drinking , & not moving about every day does not help. Less carbs do less damage
