Later life diabetes   Diabetic Revelation-onset diabetes, which most commonly sets in at age 50 or later, though it may occur earlier, is generally less severe than juvenile diabetes, and rarely leads to acidosis. The symptoms are the same for both types. Maturity-onset diabetes often controlled without medication. The doctor usually will try, unless the case is very severe, to treat the patient with low-sugar diet. He will also try to bring weight down to normal or even somewhat below the accepted normal. If diet and weight reduction do not have the desired effect on symptoms and blood and urinary sugar, the doctor then will generally prescribe one of the oral hypoglycemic medicines rather than insulin.
