Type 2 diabetes is a condition you can develop as time passes by on the clock. Blood sugar levels go out of whack, if you have the condition, and one night-time habit could be revealing that you do.
When you eat a delicious, hearty meal – or a distasteful one, if you’re unlucky – the body breaks the food down and transforms it into glucose.
Glucose is another way of saying sugar. Typically, the presence of sugar in the blood triggers the pancreas to release the hormone insulin.
In type 2 diabetes, the body becomes insulin resistant. So, even if the pancreas does release insulin, the body’s cells don’t respond to it.
