In this study, we are testing the effectiveness of an intervention known as "Coached Care" to improve health outcomes and quality of care of patients being treated for type 2 diabetes, particularly patients in underserved populations. The intervention involves training members of minority communities who have diabetes to be "coaches", teaching minority patients the skills needed to participate effectively in care during office visits, as they present for those visits. Coaches follow patients for 9 routine consecutive visits, reinforcing participation skills before and between their routine office visits.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency.
