Preventing or Delaying the Onset of Type 2 Diabetes
Part one of a three-part series presented by Stanford Health Library.
Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes, is the most common type of the disease, affecting 95 percent of people with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes affects people at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people, and those who are overweight and inactive.
