Having diabetes means that your body produces too little or no insulin. If you have type 2 diabetes (also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes), your body produces some insulin, but less than you need. The insulin you do produce does not work properly. Whether you have had type 2 diabetes for some time, or if you are newly diagnosed, this section gives advice on how to  eat healthily, manage the medication you may have to take and generally avoid the long term complications associated with having diabetes Your family and friends will also find this website useful, in particular the sections regarding hypoglycaemia (often referred to as 'hypo' or 'diabetic coma'), when your blood sugars may fall dangerously low and hyperglycaemia, when the opposite happens and your blood sugars rise too high. Having diabetes does not mean that you cannot live a normal life, but it does mean that you have to be more aware of your health now and how it will affect areas of your life such as  working or travelling.
