  • The importance of a type 2 diabetes self management plan.  By : John Richmond
    Type 2 diabetes self management plans are critical in the control of diabetes which is a disease in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal. Those with diabetes have difficulty converting food into energy. After eating a meal, food is made into a sugar called glucose, and is then carried by the blood to the cells of the body. The cells use insulin, which is a hormone made in the pancreas, to aid in the conversion of glucose into energy. Type 2 diabetes is the result of the failure of the cells in the muscles, liver, and fat to use insulin properly. The pancreas then cannot produce sufficient insulin for the body's needs. This results in an increase in the amount of glucose in the blood while the cells are deprived of energy. Eventually, these high glucose levels cause damage to nerves and blood vessels, leading to complications. These include cardiovascular disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, nerve problems, and the amputation of limbs.
