​Type 2 Diabetes Prevention–​Diabetes Resources for Diagnosed Individuals

These resources are for individuals to learn more about type II diabetes prevention and management.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body has a shortage of insulin, a decreased ability to use insulin, or both. Insulin is a hormone that allows glucose (sugar) to enter cells and be converted to energy. When diabetes is not controlled, glucose and fats remain in the blood and, over time, damage vital organs.​​
