In brief: When symptoms appear
The us preventive services task force reviewed this and found that screening all overweight men without symptoms for diabetes was not clearly beneficial.
However, if someone has increased thirst or urination, dizziness, fatigue or weight change, they should be checked - this is technically not screening if there are symptoms. A good iphone app for staying healthy is my health checklist 2012.
