Very often Type 2's have had it for years before a diagnosis is made. It is 
usually a complication, in addition to subtle symptoms, that gets one to an 
MD for evaluation.
It may have existed for 10 or more years before a diagnosis. Very insidious, 
Heart and blood vessel complications are the leading cause of death.
