Type 2 Diabetes Insulin-Resistant Type: Overview
The insulin-resistant subtype of diabetes is the most common form of Type 2 diabetes. The personís body cells lose their ability to process insulin, and the pancreas actually produces more insulin to try to overcome the resistance. The other main alternative is Type 2 Diabetes Insulin-Deficient Type where the personís pancreas produces too little insulin. Most of the issues of symptoms, diagnosis, misdiagnosis, and treatments are similar to Type 2 diabetes in general; read more about Type 2 Diabetes.
