Type 2 diabetes is a long-term condition that affects at least 3.5 million people in the UK. It happens when blood sugar levels get too high because the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body’s cells fail to react to insulin – known as insulin resistance. 90% of people in the UK with diabetes have type 2, which usually affects people over 40, but more and more young people are also being affected.
