|Which type of diabetes does the image show?|
People with type 2 diabetes produce insulin; however, the insulin is either not enough or the body is unable to recognize the insulin and use it properly (insulin resistance).
When insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can't get into the body's cells and builds up in the bloodstream instead. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it causes damage in multiple areas of the body. Also, since cells aren't getting the glucose they need, they can't function properly.
