    To begin with the author says:  "The condition occurs when an individual doesn't produce enough insulin . ."
    This is incorrect.  The author is describing Type I diabetes.  Type II diabetes is the loss of insulin sensitivity by receptor cells making it difficult to absorb sugar.  The condition causes an excess of insulin in the system causing a cascade of other maladies.
    Second:  Type II diabetes is a lifestyle illness.  Cut out carbs, increase GOOD fat intake, excersize and 90% of Type II diabetes cases are resolved without medication or surgery.
