About associated conditions for Type 2 diabetes:

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by Type 2 diabetes, and underlying causes may be causes of Type 2 diabetes, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have Type 2 diabetes. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Type 2 diabetes. People with Type 2 diabetes may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to Type 2 diabetes is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
