Patient discussion about neuronopathy

Q. I am really confused about diabetes type II? I have been diabetic for 10 years now. I know it is about how my body processes the glucose in my system, but I have met diabetics who are skinny. Mine was most likely hereditary from my mom who is no longer with us.

A. Type II Diabetes is actually more hereditary than people think, and has more genetic connection than in type I diabetes. Type II diabetes often developes also because of the risk factors that lead to it such as obesity, hyperlipidemia and hypercholesterolemia, that are all a part of the "metabolic syndrome". A person who watches their weight, exercises and watches a healthy diet can decrease their chances of having type II diabetes, in spite of a genetic background.
