In brief: Insulin resistance

Type 2 diabetes is when your body stpos responding to Insulin properly.
Insulin is what gives the signal for your cells to take up glucose(sugar) for energy, if the key (insulin) does not fit the lock (in the membrane of the cell). Then glucose is not burned and accumulates in your blood to be spilled by the kidneys.
