Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Type 2 diabetics have bodies that do not produce enough insulin to function properly or else the cells in their bodies are insulin resistant and do not react to insulin. Family history and genetics can contribute to developing type 2 diabetes as well as other lifestyle risk factors such as lack of exercise, poor diet and excess body weight.

Ninety percent of diabetics worldwide have type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can be controlled through proper foods, good weight control and medicine.

The people who are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese as compared to people at a healthy body weight. They are physically inactive and eat the wrong foods (high fat, processed, and high calorie) too. Soda drinkers are also at higher risk.

You can help by encouraging healthy foods and regular exercising.

The sides effects of drugs are pretty well known - meth rots teeth, wrecks the body and fries the brain. He needs to get into drug rehab and stop taking them altogether. Encourage him to do this.
