Diabetes type 2

By Nancy Camacho

What is diabetes?

A chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar

Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar)
levels to rise higher than normal (American Diabetes Association)

This is also called hyperglycemia (Mayo Clinic)

Type 2 diabetes does not use insulin properly also know as insulin
resistance(American Diabetes Association)

This happens over time when insulin cant make enough to keep the
blood sugar at normal levels (American Diabetes Association)

How macromolecules impact diabetes

type 2?




Insulin Plays a big part to diabetes because the

body doesnt make enough of it like it should
sugar levels in our bodys; uncontrolled blood
sugar can damage the vessels that supply blood to
important organs (heart, kidneys, eyes, and
Lipids and sugars are carbohydrate which can
also provide energy to the cells. Also is important
part of the membrane surrounding every body cell
and that helps the insulin go in blood to bind the
protein carriers in the body.

How is our papulation affected?

There are more than 50 million Hispanics/Latinos currently living in the
United States, making up about 16 percent of the population
Census Bureau estimates that by 2050, one in three people living in the
United States will be of Hispanic/Latino origin, including such diverse
subgroups as Puerto Rican, Mexican, Cuban, Central and South
According to the American Diabetes Association that the diversity
among Hispanic/Latino groups when it comes to the prevalence of
diabetes, as well as a low rate of diabetes awareness, diabetes control
and health insurance.

The use of macromolecule in diabetes

What they are meant to
The two main forms of carbohydrates are
sugars such as fructose, glucose, and lactose and
starches, which are found in foods such as
starchy vegetables, grains, rice, breads, and
The body breaks down most carbohydrates into
the sugar glucose , which is absorbed into the
As the glucose level rises in the body, the
pancreas releases a hormone called insulin which
is a protein.
Insulin is needed to move sugar from the blood
into the cells, where it can be used as a source of

What they arent doing

The body requires insulin (protein) to
enable glucose to pass from the blood vessels
into the cells that need energy. But type 2
Diabetes does not have that because it
doesnt make enough insulin. And with
carbohydrate you have to track your carbos
because to much of them can rise your blood
sugar. Lipids need insulin to store energy to
the cells and if the body is not making enough
than its in big trouble.

What foods should diabetics eat?


The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends lean proteins low in saturated fat,
like fish or turkey. Aim for two or three servings of seafood each week; some fish, like
salmon, have the added benefit of containing heart healthy omega-3 fats


When choosing grains, make sure theyre whole. Whole grains such as wild rice, quinoa, and
whole grain breads and cereals contain fiber, which is beneficial for digestive health. Whole
grains also contain healthy vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.


Some types of fat actually help protect your heart. Choose the monounsaturated fats found
in avocados, almonds, and pecans or the polyunsaturated fats found in walnuts and
sunflower oil, which can help to lower bad cholesterol
