Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms
Many people dealing with diabetes admit that the disease snuck up on them. They didn’t see it coming.
These men and women didn’t suddenly lose weight or become excessively hungry and thirsty (as those with type 1 diabetes often experience), nor did they feel sick in any way. In fact, there are few truly recognizable type 2 diabetes symptoms. The disease is usually discovered during a routine blood test when a high fasting blood glucose reading, usually in the 150 to 300 mg/dL range, is noted.
There are, however, a few common type 2 diabetes signs and symptoms:
- The vast majority of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight, with the distribution of weight most commonly in the abdominal area.
- Most people with type 2 diabetes are inactive.
- Worldwide, the greatest increase in the number of people managing diabetes appears in those over the age of 65. Beginning in our forties, our lifestyle indiscretions are no longer protected by the resilience of youth. Things like an unhealthy diet, extra pounds, and lack of exercise suddenly turn into diabetes risk factors and begin take their toll.
