Type 2 Diabetes Is Becoming More Common in Asia and Latin America

Type 2 diabetes has become a global phenomenon now. It is usually observed that over weight people are at a greater risk of developing this disease. Previously, only the older and wealthier people in United States had diabetes but since the introduction of fast food, television, video games and cars in the developing countries, people belonging to regions like Asia or Latin America have also started contracting this condition.

In diabetes, the body becomes insulin resistant. Due to an illness or exposure to environmental toxins, the liver and muscle cells shut down their sugar receptors to protect themselves from free radicals. Then pancreas produces even more insulin to bring down the unconsumed levels of sugar in the blood. This results in the cells becoming more resistant to the extra free oxygen radicals that are produced due to burning sugar. This makes the body further resistant to insulin, which remains unused in the body and starts to store fat leading to weight gain in people.

 

Asians or Latin Americans develop diabetes from the initial stages faster

It has been observed that Asians or Latin Americans develop diabetes from the initial stages faster than people of other ethnic groups. Even if they are not overweight, their blood sugar levels would be higher. The problem is that many Asians and Latin Americans have genes that make them prone to weight gain especially in the belly area, which leads to high blood pressure and high sugar levels. It does not matter that they are thin in the rest of their body. Various problems are caused by the adipose tissue accumulation around the waist.

Thus, people of Asian and Latin American descent need to be extra vigilant of getting diabetes. It is essential for them to get a type 2 screening whenever possible. A lifetime of medical problems can be avoided with an early detection of this disease.
