Too much sugar: Diabetics often have too much sugar in their blood. The body tries to either use this sugar or store it, but due to Insulin resistance it is not able to properly do either. The excess sugar is then changed to fatty acids that are then used to create triglycerides. Most type 2 diabetics are also obese, which is associated with high triglycerides. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Extended exposure to elevated blood sugars can desensitize Insulin receptors in your body, leading to difficulty in blood sugar crossing from the blood stream into the cell.

Over years, this high Insulin state leads to type 2 diabetes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Your doctor, however, depending on your medications, diet. ...Read more

In time, that may not work either, and then you need to use insulin. Wt loss may work to get you off insulin. ...Read more
