What is Type 2 Diabetes?

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. With Type 2 Diabetes, the body does not produce enough insulin or the body’s cells do not react to insulin.

But don’t panic, we can help… Type 2 diabetes can actually disappear with the right guidance and within the right environment*…
