One Drop Guide to Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a type of diabetes in which glucose builds up in the bloodstream due to insulin resistance and low insulin levels. Insulin, which you can learn about here, is the hormone that regulates blood sugar.

Currently, there is no cure for type 2 diabetes. BUT you can manage type 2 diabetes well and avoid complications with a good diet, regular exercise, and, in most cases, some medication (e.g., metformin, insulin, etc.). Anyone can live a long and healthy life with T2D! The key is keeping blood glucose in range and sticking to a mindful, healthy lifestyle.

In order to manage diabetes well, it’s important to understand exactly how diabetes works. That’s why we’ve created the One Drop Guide to T2D:

  • to help you understand the basics of T2D, including the role of the pancreas and insulin
  • to show you ways you can help your body achieve balance and lower your blood sugar levels

We hope you find this helpful and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
