Type-2 diabetes is not the same as type-1 diabetes, in that type-2 is a chronic condition brought on by sedentary lifestyles, other physical issues and ailments, a lack of exercise and physical activity, and a poor diet with the predominance of foods that are high in fat, calories, and sugar. Type-2 diabetes is a chronic condition that is typically brought on through poor personal choices, and is a condition that can severely affect the human body, the immune system, and even lead to issues like a shortened life span, the amputation of feet, arms, and legs, and more.

Type-2 diabetes is entirely preventable, as it is a chronic condition brought about by poor personal health and lifestyle choices. As such, it is imperative that doctors and health educators get involved in a patient’s life with health and nutrition education. Type-2 diabetes can be overcome with hard work; exercise, proper nutrition and weight loss, and a patient can beat the symptoms and the condition itself.


As mentioned above, type-2 diabetes is entirely a chronic condition brought about by poor nutrition and a lack of exercise. Bad diet and exercise are the main culprits, and this is a problem since obesity issues are a growing scourge across the developed world. As such, type-2 diabetes has greatly increased in incidence and prevalence over the past several decades, and millions of people suffer through it as they try to life their lives.

Type-2 diabetes can be cured with good old-fashioned exercise! As it is a chronic condition that affects a person’s health, lifestyle, and quality of life, patients who work to improve the causes of type-2 diabetes – lack of exercise, poor nutrition, bad food consumption – can effectively work to wipe out the causes and proactively cure type-2 diabetes in their bodies. It takes hard work, but it is possible.


Symptoms of type-2 diabetes are very similar to many of the symptoms of type-1 diabetes, and range from extreme lethargy and fatigue during daily activities, to trouble and pain urinating or frequent urination, to low blood pressures due to variances in blood sugar levels in the body.

However, in type-2 diabetes, the symptoms typically present themselves well into adulthood, as they take place in individuals who are well into a life of poor nutrition and food habits, and a sedentary lifestyle. Luckily, people who take the proactive habits of exercising, healthy nutrition, and more into their lives can overcome these symptoms and type-2 diabetes as a whole. Medical professionals can help the transition with guiding patients on techniques to live healthy, fulfilling lives, as well.
