One factor that plays a huge role is the presence of a family history of diabetes. Is it a factor for you? Who in the family has also been diagnosed? Have you talked to them about it?
Research suggests that having a parent with type 2 diabetes increases your risk of developing the disease by as much as fourfold, and even more if both parents are affected.
Yet, it also depends on environmental factors. Lifestyle also influences the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity tends to run in families, and families tend to have similar eating and exercise habits.
It may be difficult to figure out whether diabetes is due to lifestyle factors or genetic susceptibility. Most likely it is due to both.
Type 2 diabetes is considered chronic diabetes. Potentially reversible diabetes conditions include prediabetes — when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes — and gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy but may resolve after the baby is delivered.
Diabetes symptoms vary depending on how much your blood sugar is elevated. Some people, especially those with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, may not experience symptoms initially.
Some of the signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes are:
Unexplained weight loss
Presence of ketones in the urine (ketones are a byproduct of the breakdown of muscle and fat that happens when there’s not enough available insulin)
Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections and vaginal infections
Type 2 diabetes, the more common type, can develop at any age, though it’s more common in people older than 40.
Glucose in your bloodstream attaches to life-giving proteins, adversely affecting how these proteins are meant to work. As these undesirable “Glycated Proteins” increase, so do the A1c levels in your body, along with the risk of damage to your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and eyesight.
Fortunately, there’s help. Lysulin acts as a guardian by binding to glucose, shielding your proteins from reacting with glucose. The Lysulin bound to glucose is safely excreted through urine. Actively managing your blood sugar promotes metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurological health. Lysulin provides nutritional support to help you improve your health and maintain healthy Hemoglobin A1c levels.
