Type 2 diabetes, once known as adult-onset or non insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose), your body’s important source of fuel.
More common in adults, type 2 diabetes increasingly affects children as childhood obesity increases. There’s no cure for type 2 diabetes, but you may be able to manage the condition by eating well, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight.
If diet and exercise aren’t enough to manage your blood sugar well, you also may need diabetes medications or insulin therapy. We also provide with on-site results to our patients. Call our office and schedule your diabetes testing at (936) 270-8008.
