Type 1 diabetes typically presents in the teens with a short history of weight loss,
incredible thirst and polyuria (passing lots of urine). Such patients are often thin, there
is very often no family history of diabetes and although the cause of the illness is not
known, it is thought to be triggered by a viral infection.
Type 2 diabetes typically presents later in life. Such patients are often overweight at
diagnosis and there is often a strong family history of the disease. It is not known
why the disease develops but it may be related to over-eating. In contrast to type 1
diabetes, patients with type 2 diabetes are often asymptomatic when it is diagnosed
and the diagnosis is often made whilst a doctor is investigating some other complaint.
