Physician Liu Hanwen from the Department of Metabolism. Wanfang Hospital pointed out: “The most important hormone in our body. To regulate blood sugar is insulin, and insulin is secreted by pancreatic beta cells. The core cause of type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance and the lack of insulin secretion ability.
“For example, a unit of insulin can reduce
blood sugar by 10 mg. Allowing the sugar in the blood to enter the cells. And be metabolized by the cells to store energy. But because of insulin resistance. A unit of insulin only reduces blood sugar by 5 mg. Which stimulates the secretion of beta cells. More insulin is released to bring blood sugar down. When the blood sugar has exceeded the level that the beta cells can handle. It is easy to fatigue after working hard for a long time, resulting in the decline of the beta cells.
