In the Type 2 form of Diabetes the pancreas produces insulin but the body is not able to use the insulin produced either partially or completely.
The other term that can be used for this is insulin resistance and this is the main cause for the development of Type 2 Diabetes. The body makes every effort to produce more insulin to overcome this resistance and when it fails to cope with the higher demands Type 2 Diabetes is the outcome.
Heredity also plays a major role in Type 2 diabetes. Let's look at a few causes these are, high blood triglyceride levels, high blood pressure, high fat diet, gestational diabetes, high alcohol intake, obesity (especially around the waist region), sedentary lifestyle and aging.
Cornerstones4Care(TM) is a program aimed at giving people with diabetes the tools and resources they need to actively manage their day-to-day care.
Novo Nordisk, a world leader in patient-centered diabetes care, is proud to announce a new support program for people with diabetes and those who care for them. When someone enrolls in Cornerstones4Care(TM), he or she will have access to tools and resources that can help them be an active participant in the care plan you prescribe.
People who are actively engaged in disease education are more likely to follow treatment recommendations. And Cornerstones4Care(TM) engages people like never before, personalizing each person's experience over time. As a result, each office visit could become more efficient, because you may spend less time reinforcing basic concepts - giving you more time for meaningful discussions on what else they can do to continue their progress.
Most people will also find all the basic information and tools they need to understand and follow the care plans you have been prescribed, such as the importance of healthy eating, being active, taking medicine as directed, and monitoring their blood glucose.
Please ask your Novo Nordisk representative if you need more program brochures or if you have any questions about the benefits of the program. If you prefer, you can visit Cornerstones4Care.com to see the program for yourself.
