How a Dietitian Can Help with Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is where your body becomes resistant to insulin and/ or gradually loses the ability to produce enough insulin in the pancreas.
Insulin helps your body use glucose by moving it from the blood into the cells where it can be used or stored.
If you don't have enough insulin or if your cells are resistant to utilising insulin, glucose can't move from the bloodstream and builds up leading to short-term and long-term health problems.
