What Is Type 2 Diabetes? | 2 Minute Guide | Diabetes UK

Share this:

Around 4.2 million people are predicted to be living with type 2 diabetes in the UK, and an estimated 12.3 million people are at risk of type 2 diabetes. But lots of people still don’t know what the condition is.

Type 2 diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition where the insulin your pancreas makes can’t work properly, or your pancreas can’t make enough insulin. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes include feeling very tired, needing to wee a lot, feeling extremely thirsty, cuts and grazes healing slowly and getting infections like thrush.

If you’ve got any of these symptoms, see a doctor as soon as possible. For more information about type 2 diabetes check out our dedicated page: https://www.diabetes.org.uk/type-2-diabetes
