Diabetes has become a well-known disease worldwide, with a high number of people affected by it. Despite many individuals being able to manage the disease, it remains a feared condition due to the constant monitoring it requires. In this article, based on a publication from Healthline, we will examine some facts about type 2 Diabetes and its causes.
Firstly, let's define type 2 diabetes:
Type 2 Diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, generally affects people from their late 40s and beyond. According to healthline This type of diabetes is common among adults of all races due to the vulnerabilities that come with aging. In contrast, Type 1 Diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, affects children of any age, and it is usually hereditary, caused by the presence of autoantibodies in the body.
Now, let's look at the causes:
Scientists have yet to identify a specific cause of type 2 Diabetes. However, it is generally believed that a combination of factors such as lifestyle, environment, and genetics can contribute to the development of the disease. For instance, people who consume sugary foods and drinks or lead a sedentary lifestyle are at a higher risk of type 2 Diabetes as they age. Furthermore, individuals whose parents have type 2 Diabetes have a higher likelihood of developing the condition as they get older, as genetics plays a role. However, it's worth noting that not everyone with a family history of the disease will develop it.
In conclusion, type 2 Diabetes can be caused by both environmental and genetic factors, and it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risk of developing the disease.
