Diabetes type 2 affects millions of people in the United States and if you are like me it affects you personally. Maybe this diagnosis was expected. Perhaps you began to experience some of the common symptoms of diabetes type 2 such as increased appetite, thirst, and frequency of urination or you noticed a change in your vision so you used resources such as the internet or you asked a friend in the healthcare field and therefore you were not completely surprised to receive your diagnosis. On the other hand, maybe you never saw it coming. Either way you are now aware that you have diabetes type 2 and your life will be changing.
