What Is Type 2 Diabetes?

As obesity rates climb, so has the incidence of type 2 diabetes.   
Type 2 diabetes symptoms generally
develop very gradually.  
As your body becomes less responsive to insulin,
symptoms usually get worse.
However, sometimes people with type 2 diabetes
experience no diabetes symptoms at all.

Questions to Ask Your Doctor.

Being proactive during your next trip to the doctor can make a big difference
in the way you're able to manage your type 2 diabetes. Your health is important
— both to you and to your doctor — so don't hesitate to ask questions about
your type 2 diabetes diagnosis, your diabetes medication, complementary or
alternative therapies for type 2 diabetes, emotional issues, financial concerns about
paying for your treatment, or diet or lifestyle modifications. Engaging in a dialogue
with your doctor will help you educate yourself about type 2 diabetes and the
available treatment options, and it'll give your doctor a better sense of who you
are and how diabetes is affecting your health and your life. With the lines of communication open, you and your doctor will be better able to develop a
treatment plan that meets your needs.
