Whereas, type II diabetes is much more common and rapidly increasing. We have a tendency to think, this is a disease of blood sugar. It is an “insulin resistant” state and even though insulin is produced, it is not enough to control the blood sugar. This is a slowly progressive disease and it takes 12-18 years for one to become diabetic. It is a vascular disease that is a “Silent Killer” and is the most common cause of blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and amputation.
