Usually people with Type 2 don't have any of the warning signs. If it's pre-diabetes, then it can be controlled by diet. Type 2 isn't always controlled by diet, especially if one has it later in life. I know several people with Type 2 who do take insulin shots. The first idiot dr. I went to told me mine was Type 2, I guess just because I was in my early 50's when it started. But when the diet and meds could not get the glucose below 300, I decided to go to an endocrinologist to get things under control.Hi, I have type 2 diabetes. What did your doctor tell you a long time ago? It can be controlled by diet. Get yourself tested for Diabetes. It is a simple blood test.
I was tested during a hospital stay because of status epilepsy. They were surprised that I had diabetes. I did not have any of the warning signs.
With Type 1, the warning signs are rapid weight loss, vision loss, extreme thirst, and feeling lightheaded. Like I said before, it was the optometrist that made the diagnosis for me. I thought I had a brain tumor or was going blind, the vision loss was that sudden.
