Is type 2 diabetes caused by genetic and environmental factors

1 Answer:

Hello Yuli,


Thank you for the question.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body is resistant to the action of the hormone insulin, the hormone produced by the pancreas, which has an important role in reducing blood sugar levels and increasing its absorption into cells for use as an energy source. As a result of this insulin resistance, blood sugar levels will increase, and the pancreas will be stimulated to produce more and more insulin, to the point where the pancreas is damaged and unable to produce enough insulin to compensate for this resistance.


It is unclear exactly what factors cause this type 2 diabetes. But it is true, genetic factors (hereditary, hereditary) and environment are strongly suspected to be the trigger. The risk of diabetes will increase in obese people, less physically active (lazy to move, lazy to exercise), elderly, also have problems with hypertension, dyslipidemia, and polycystic ovary syndrome.


People with type 2 diabetes need to check their condition directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. With early treatment, the risk of dangerous complications, including heart, nerve, blood vessels, kidney, eye, and other organ systems can be minimized.


Hope this helps ...
