Type 2 Diabetes Basics Center

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes. It occurs when glucose builds up in the blood due to the body's inability to use insulin effectively. Type 2 diabetes was once called adult onset diabetes because it is usually diagnosed in adulthood. The disease may be prevented or controlled through diet and exercise, but some patients need insulin or other medications.
