Re: World Health Organisation Diabetes Type 2

Diabetes is a chronic, metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar), which leads over time to serious damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys and nerves.

The most common is type 2 diabetes, usually in adults, which occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or doesn't make enough insulin.

Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (formerly called non-insulin-dependent, or adult-onset) results from the body’s ineffective use of insulin. The majority of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.

This type of diabetes is largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity.

Symptoms may be similar to those of type 1 diabetes, but are often less marked. As a result, the disease may be diagnosed several years after onset, after complications have already arisen.

Until recently, this type of diabetes was seen only in adults but it is now also occurring increasingly frequently in children.

Please find the below attached file for the WHO Global Report on Diabetes:

WHO Global Report on Diabetes


Diabetes of all types can lead to complications in many parts of the body and can increase the overall risk of dying prematurely.

Possible complications include kidney failure, leg amputation, vision loss and nerve damage.

Adults with diabetes also have two- to three-fold increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.

In pregnancy, poorly controlled diabetes increases the risk of fetal death and other complications.

Here I am giving you details about World Health Organisation Diabetes Type 2:

Diabetes and its consequences
Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by chronic
hyperglycaemia with disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein
metabolism resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both1. The current diagnostic criteria are shown in Table 1 In summary, diabetes is diagnosed if the (venous) fasting plasma glucose (FPG) value is >= 7.0 mmol l-1 (126 mg dl-1), or if the casual plasma glucose value is >= 11.1 mmol l-1 (200 mg dl-1), or if the plasma glucose value 2 hours after a 75g oral load of glucose >= 11.1 mmol l-1 (200 mg dl-1). In asymptomatic subjects, performing the test on one occasion is not enough to establish the diagnosis (i.e. basis to treat diabetes). This must be confirmed by carrying out at least one further test on a subsequent day.

Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and impaired fasting glycaemia
(IFG) are risk categories for the future development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). An individual falling into the IFG category on the fasting result may also have IGT on the 2-h value or, indeed, diabetes. If an individual falls into two different categories, the more severe one applies.
