People with type 2 diabetes may have no symptoms for years or decades, but as the condition progresses and blood sugar rises, symptoms appear. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin, or when the body does not use insulin properly. It is usually found in adulthood although it can sometimes affect children.
