In brief: Yes!
Yes. Both refer to the type of diabetes that used to be called adult onset.
Now we call it "type 2 dm" or "dm-2" or type 2 diabetes, etc. This is the kind related to overweight/obesity and family history of dm-2. When people are "heading toward" type 2 dm, they will have a slight increase in triglycerides (fats in the blood), blood pressure and glucose. If this continues it becomes dm-2.
