  • Lesson Diabetes: Type 2 Pathophysiology teaches these concepts

  • Pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes, Introduction: Pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes

  • Lesson Diabetes: Type 2 Pathophysiology addresses these key points

  • Type 2 Diabetes

    • Formerly called non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, or adult-onset diabetes
    • Most common form accounting for approximately 90% of all cases
    • Occurs from insulin resistance and a progressive loss of pancreatic beta-cell function that results in impaired insulin release
  • Lesson Diabetes: Type 2 Pathophysiology is built from these main references. Log into SMi Source for a complete list and details.
