Type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic hyperglycemia primarily associated with overweight and a sedentary lifestyle.
The disease is becoming increasingly more widespread throughout the population, leading to serious complications related to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys and nerves.
Prevention is possible at the prediabetes stage, provided that certain hygiene and dietary measures are taken. Its treatment also requires a lifestyle change in combination with pharmacological treatments which may become more significant as the disease evolves.
