Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease that affects how the body processes sugar for fuel.

With this long-term condition, too much sugar circulates in the bloodstream and can eventually lead to circulatory, nervous and immune system disorders.

Type 2 diabetes is mainly caused by two interrelated problems:

your pancreas does not produce enough insulin, and your cells respond inadequately to insulin.

These are some of the ways to manage and treat diabetes,
ranging from healthy eating to blood sugar monitoring.

Healthy eating

Well-balanced & nutritional meals

Physical activity

Exercise and maintain a healthy weight

Weight loss

To lower blood sugar levels, cholesterol, triglycerides & blood pressure

Blood sugar monitoring

Check your blood sugar levels regularly
