What Causes Type 2 Diabetes?
According to WebMD When you’re healthy, the pancreas (an organ behind the stomach) releases insulin to help your body store and use sugar from the food you eat. Diabetes happens when one or more of the following occurs:
- Your pancreas doesn’t make any insulin.
- Your pancreas makes very little insulin.
- Your body doesn’t respond like it should to insulin
