Description

Now available in Spanish, the Second Edition of our Understanding Type 2 DiabetesAnatomical Chart has been simplified for easier and faster comprehension. The chart defines type 2 diabetes and the role of glucose and insulin in the body, and lists symptoms, risk factors, and ways to control the disease. This revised chart shows glucose molecules from the digestive system and insulin molecules from the pancreas traveling in a blood vessel. Illustrations visually compare a normal body cell to a body cell with diabetes and show when the cell develops a resistance to insulin, making it more difficult for glucose to enter the cell and leading to build-up of glucose in the blood vessel. The chart textually and visually presents complications from the disease: heart disease, stroke, vascular disease, nerve damage (neuropathy), kidney disease (nephropathy), periodontal disease (gum disease and mouth infection), and eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.
