Type 2 Diabetes: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 03, 2016

Below the surface, living with diabetes can mean anxiety with each meal, days spent in bed, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to type 2 diabetes than meets the eye. We know that diabetes comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On DiabetesTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with type 2 diabetes, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. DiabetesTeam has grown to reach 71,000 members and members have shared over 1 million conversations about life with diabetes. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on DiabetesTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent diabetes symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a diabetes diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread diabetes awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
