Also known as Non-Insulin dependent diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM). It is the more common form f diabetes. 90% of the total diabetic population. In this case, insulin production by the pancreas is not stopped. In fact, the problem is the peripheral utilization of insulin. Due to obesity or other factors, insulin resistance is increased and it is not effective in lowering blood glucose levels. So oral medicines are needed to lower insulin resistance and lower blood glucose level.
