Diagnosis & tests

Type 2 diagnosis

Get the basics on type 2 diabetes in children, including prevention strategies and special concerns with teens.

Screening & tests

Because often there are no symptoms with type 2 diabetes, early screening may help people avoid the more serious complications of the disease. Learn who should be tested, what tests are used, and more.

If you have severe increased thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, increased hunger, or tingling in your hands or feet, your doctor may run a test for diabetes.
