Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas produces either too little insulin or when the insulin produced doesn’t work properly (insulin resistance). The end result is that the glucose levels in the bloodstream rise and over time health problems such as heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney damage, amputations (particularly of the feet and legs) can occur.

The AUSDRISK was developed by the International Diabetes Institute (Baker IDI), based on the Finnish Type 2 Diabetes Risk Score—or FINRISC—and has been adapted for the Australian population (read more at NIMA National Institute of Medical Aesthetics).The  body’s sensitivity to insulin can be reduced by heavy / alcoholism, which can be a trigger for type 2 diabetes.

3. The are a huge amount of calories in alcohol, for example, in one pint of lager there are the  equivalent amount of calories as a slice of pizza.

About AusDrisk

The AUSDRISK is the acronym for the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment Tool that was released in July 2008 as part of an Australian Government, State and Territory health initiative to assess a person’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes within the next five years (results may be effected by the use of medications such as Viagra / Cialis or other ED medications)
