  • Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, the bodies of people with type 2 diabetes make insulin. But either their pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body cannot use the insulin well enough. This is called insulin resistance. When there isn't enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can't get into the body's cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the body's cells are not able to function properly. Other problems associated with the buildup of glucose in the blood include:
    • Damage to the body. Over time, the high glucose levels in the blood can damage the nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys, and heart and lead to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke.
    • Dehydration. The buildup of sugar in the blood can cause an increase in urination, causing dehydration.
    • Diabetic coma (hyper osmolar non ketotic diabetic coma) .When a person with type 2 diabetes becomes very ill or severely dehydrated and is not able to drink enough fluids to make up for the fluid losses, they may develop this life-threatening complication.

    Who Gets Type 2 Diabetes?

    Anyone can get type 2 diabetes. But those at highest risk for the disease are those who:

    • Are over 45Image 02
    • Are obese or overweight
    • Have had gestational diabetes 
    • Have family members who have type 2 diabetes
    • Have prediabetes
    • Don't exercise
    • Have low HDL cholesterol or high triglycerides
    • Have high blood pressure
    • Are members of certain racial or ethnic groups

    What Causes Type 2 Diabetes?

    Although it is more common than type 1 diabetes, the causes of type 2 diabetes are less well understood. It is likely caused by many things.

    Type 2 diabetes can run in families, but the how it's inherited is not known.

    Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. While not everyone with type 2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes of this form of diabetes. It is also responsible for nearly 95% of diabetes cases in the United States, according to the CDC. 


    Diabetes is a serious disease that can cause debilitating nerve pain.

    In a healthy person, the pancreas (an organ behind the stomach) releases insulin to help the body store and use the sugar from the food you eat. Diabetes happens when one of the following occurs:

    • When the pancreas does not produce any insulin.
    • When the pancreas produces very little insulin.
    • When the body does not respond appropriately to insulin, a condition called "insulin resistance."

    Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, people with type 2 diabetes produce insulin; however, the insulin their pancreas secretes is either not enough or the body is unable to recognize the insulin and use it properly (insulin resistance). When there isn't enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can't get into the body's cells and builds up in the bloodstream instead. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it causes damage in multiple areas of the body. Also, since cells aren't getting the glucose they need, they can't function properly.

     

    Phytochemistry: Works has been done by many scientists in the field of phytochemical investigation of the plant we use. The reported chemical examination of the plant we use showed the presence of, carbohydrates, carotene, fat, protein, phytin, amino acids, alanine arginine, cystine, glutamic acid, glycine, hydroxyproline, leucine, serine, trypotophan, pipe colic acid, flavonoids and saponins.
