Type 2 diabetes is often diagnosed following blood or urine tests for something else.

However, you should see your GP straight away if you have any symptoms of diabetes.

To find out if you have type 2 diabetes, you usually have to go through the following steps:

  1. See your GP about your symptoms.
  2. Your GP will check your urine and arrange a blood test to check your blood sugar levels. It usually takes about 1 to 2 days for the results to come back.
  3. If you have diabetes, your GP will ask you to come in again so they can explain the test results and what will happen next.

If you''ll talk to you about:

  • what diabetes is
  • what high blood sugar means for your health
  • what medicine you''s usually difficult to take in everything the GP tells you during the appointment.

    Talk to family and friends about what the GP told you, and write down any questions you have.

    Then make another GP appointment and take your list of questions with you.

    There''ll have to go for regular type 2 diabetes check-ups.

  • You'll have to look out for certain signs to avoid other health problems.
