I was first told i had diabetes when i wa18…that was 22 years ago.
Growing up i played all kinds of sports…was in a band…just typical boy fun.
What i didn't know was the frequent urinations,sweets in the middle of the night,thirst,and dizzy spells…were all signs of dibetes.My parents didn't think much of it either.

Yep, many of us had those symptoms and never knew it was a problem. I think especially with type 2 diabetics who get it later in life, we just think it is part of getting old, until we mention it to a doctor or get a lab result back. That is something we should always keep in mind, because even though we are diagnosed, if we slack off, these symptoms can come back and yell at us to get a grip.
