Type 2 Diabetes Pathology

Overview

Type 2 diabetes is a complex metabolic disease characterized by hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, cell inflammation, oxidation, and glycation.


These biological processes gradually cause serious damage to major tissues and organs including the arteries, eyes, kidneys, feet, heart and brain. 


The key stages of Type 2 diabetes pathology and pathogenesis include:

-- Hyperglycemia

-- Insulin Resistance

-- Oral Glucose Tolerance

-- Chronic Inflammation/Oxidation

-- Prediabetes

-- Full-blown Type 2 Diabetes

-- Diabetic Complications

Type 2 Diabetes at the Cell Level

Overview

As depicted in the cell diagram, the insulin receptors on the surface of each cell are damaged (inflamed).


These damaged receptors ignore the presence of insulin in your blood and prevent glucose from entering your cells via the glucose transporters  [1a].


Consequently, the glucose stays in the blood, causing your blood glucose level to rise [1b]. As a result, the cells can't produce energy or burn fat [2]


In addition, the cells are unable to remove toxins and waste [3]; and, over time, the cells may become further damaged and lose the ability to communicate with each other [4].

Get Well Plan

Begin eating more healthy foods to help lower your blood sugar and provide more effective management of your Type 2 diabetes.


Just as important, stop eating the processed foods that spike your blood sugar, rob your body of key nutrients and cause harm to your body.
