Diabetes, can come to you specially if you already have a family history that predisposes you to it. A sedentary life with a poor diet, or being overweight can contribute to acquiring Type II Diabetes. Main symptoms include excess thirst, hunger and incresaed frequency of urination. Other symptoms can include blurry vision, numbness. Keep looking out for these symptoms, and report to doctor if yu have any of them to start early treatment and thus prevent complications.
