Link between Overweight and Type 2 Diabetes

This time I wanted to give an illustration of the relationship between obesity and Type 2 Diabetes. I hope this illustration may fairly clear and useful.

If we are overweight, then the cells in our bodies will be covered with fat. This will cause the insulin can not deliver glucose, we get from food, into the cells that need it. Our cells use glucose as a fuel. The unused glucose will ends up just floating around in our blood and building up. Then cells that do not have fuel will send out an alarm to tell the body, as commander to make its own glucose. Our liver begins to function by creating and injected the glucose into the blood. Even though the condition of our blood is full with glucose (the cells didn’t know when they are sounding the alarm). The glucose in the blood gets higher and higher, but still cannot work since the cells are still blocked by too much fat.

Because blood is full of glucose, then the next session begins. Our bodies will send commands to the pancreas as insulin factory to produce insulin. Insulin can help bring glucose level down. But for the pancreas this is a war that it could not win. Because we will continue to eat and put a new glucose into the body, while our cells cry out for lack of fuel and forcing the liver continues to produce new glucose. One moment the pancreas will get tired and become weak or may even stop working. And we run out of soldier to fight the glucose. Then what?
We lost the war against terrorists and the world coming to an end. Sorry,…just kidding.

Glucose, as a terrorist, will spread and make the occupation of the whole body. They go everywhere blood needs to go like your heart, brain, lungs, fingers, toes, legs, stomach, eyes, and many more. Eventually you will suffer from Type 2 Diabetes.

This does not happen overnight, but it can happen slowly over years. Beware and watch your lifestyle. THIS CAN HAPPEN TO EVERYONE even though that is not overweight.

I like health articles, your article is very good. to control blood sugar levels is not difficult (before diabetes)

the problem is that lifestyle neglect his own health. awareness to fear or care is still lacking. often after exposure to diabetes, then came the fear, then it was too late.
