Thanks for posting your query.
At the age of 59, patient develops type II diabetes mellitus which generally doesnot manifest in any form of symptoms.
This type of diabetes is generally picked up during routine blood testing and during some complication such as myocardial infarction, stroke, renal failure, GI problems.
Symptoms mentioned by you are features of type I diabetes.
So don't wait for symptoms and continue your medicine as advised by your physician.
Get well soon.
