Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (Type II Diabetes)

Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases with characteristic hyperglycemia associated with defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both. There are several different types of diabetes.
Type 2 (Non-Insulin dependent) diabetes may range from predominantly insulin resistance with relative insulin deficiency to a predominantly secretory defect with insulin resistance.
Type 2 diabetes affects more than 15 million adult Americans and the prevalence is increasing.
Persons with diabetes experience significan't illness and even death from a variety of long term effects of elevated blood glucose levels. This is related to the damage of blood vessels in important organs such as the heart, eye, and kidney.
The aim of diabetes care is to maximize quality and length of life by:
  • providing education and training to manage the disease and its treatment
  • developing an understanding to facilitate coping with new challenges
  • controlling the risk of damage to the eye, kidney, foot and arterial circulation
  • early detection and management of any complications of diabetes
Treatment for anyone with diabetes must include reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, especially control of blood pressure, cessation of smoking, and correction of cholesterol and lipid abnormalities. Diet, exercise, and weight control are the cornerstone of management, especially of type 2 diabetes.
