According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approximately 26 million Americans have Type 2 Diabetes. That includes about 27 percent of Americans age 65 or older. Type II Diabetes, which constitutes about 90-95% of all types of diabetes, is common in adults. It is caused by resistance to insulin, the hormone that absorbs sugar from your diet. The unabsorbed sugar causes the symptoms of diabetes and can lead to health issues such as heart disease, obesity and kidney failure.
