8 Signs You’re Having a Type 2 Diabetes

3- Extreme Fatigue

Your body is like a car—it needs fuel to function. Its primary source of fuel is glucose (sugar), which is gained from foods that contain carbohydrates that get broken down. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, takes sugar from your blood to your cells to use for energy. However, when you have diabetes, either your pancreas isn’t making enough insulin or the insulin that your body is making isn’t being used the way it’s supposed to be, typically because the cells become resistant to it.

This results in your cells becoming deprived of sugar, or fuel. The result: tiredness and extreme fatigue. This often gets misunderstood as hunger, and people eat more.
