The onset of type 2 diabetes is very slow. Abnormal blood glucose slowly increases over time, often over five to ten years. High blood glucose levels are often associated with:

  • increased thirst
  • frequent urination
  • increased hunger
  • fatigue
  • slow wound healing
  • blurred vision
  • frequent and reoccurring infections
  • areas of darkened skin

The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes very often follows the complaint of a sore that does not heal, a change eye glass prescription or medical or dental attention for an infection. Nearly 40% of people with diabetes suffer from depression. Undiagnosed or untreated depression makes diabetes self care and its demands challenging.
