In brief: Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is caused by the pancreas no producing enough Insulin or the body starts resisting insulin.
(insulin the key for sugar) if type 2 diabetes is ignored it could effect the heart, nervous system, blood vessels, eyes and kidneys. It also could be life threatening if not taken proper care of. See the mayo clinic website (a credible source) for further information.
