Type 2 diabetes is a condition that means your body can’t control your blood sugar levels well. This can have a big impact on your health.

The most commonly prescribed medication for type 2 diabetes is called Metformin. It isn’t a cure but can help to lower your blood sugar levels so they’re in a safe range.
