A disease contracted by eating a life time's worth of yummy snacks in 10 minutes. Disease made famous by Wilford Brimley, who has a very distinct pronunciation of the word" Die-a-bee-tus.

A disease that you do not want to get. Trust me, it fucking sucks. You have to take shots all the time and you have to have diet drinks.
I hate having this goddamn shit known as diabetes.

An awesome disease where you lose a function of your pancreas because God doesn't like you that day.

You get to prick your fingers everyday to get a large sample of blood for you glucose meter. You can either take shots of insulin for every meal, or some people have an insulin pump which continually pumps insulin into your system. The pump is awesome because it's on your side 24/7 and kids and teachers can even make fun of you at school!

Diabetics especially love when people ask them questions like, "CAN U HAVE SUAGR?!?" or, "OMG, CAN I CATCH DIABETES?!" They also love it when you tell them that Nick Jonas has diabetes too, because we're lucky we can relate to him.

There's even some kickass symptoms that you have along with all the needles! When you're bloodsugar is too high, you get to feel nauseous and might even blow chunks! You can also have a headache and double vision, too! When you're bloodsugar is too low, you get to feel lightheaded and shaky, like you're going to pass out.

You can also get badass disease that can be caused by diabetes, like BLINDNESS, HEART DISEASE, KIDNEY FAILURE, AMPUTATION OF LEGS, etc.!

Diabetes is EPIC WIN.
LOLAWESOME: "OMG, you have diabetes? Is that contagious?"

Just because you have Diabetes doesn't always mean you are fat and dont require insulin. You can be pencle thin and still require insulin. It depends on your body and how it uses the insulin it makes or receives.
I have Diabetes and I'm 5 foot and 100 lbs and require 400 units a day of Humalog insulin because I'm insulin resistant.

A condition in which the pancreas secretes little or no insulin - a hormone that lowers the blood sugar level.
I have none for the word. However, I must say that AJ is completely oblivious on the subject.

A pain in the ass! it causes nasty scar tissue. you have to take shots(i take 5 a day) and prick your finger with a smaller needle(4 times a day for me). It causes pain and suffering. and to some little kid that thinks it rocks... you are a sick SOB. You need mental help.
I've had diabetes since I was 1 1/2 and now I'm 15.(this is true)

when your pancreas stops producing insulin. NOT because of sugar. type 1 has to do with taking shots/using a pump. type 2 has to do with obesity. where you take a pill. It also includes taking your blood sugar every two hours that you're awake. it's a pain in the ass.
brittany has diabetes, so she has to take insulin before eating anything.

Diabetes is an endocrine disorder charicterised by excessive thurst with frequent urination. once treated and if managed symptoms will subside. Diabetes has two groups diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus.
both of these types of diabetes have the same symptoms but the endocrine disorders are much diffrent
diabetes insipidus is a pituitary deficiency of the hormone vasopressin which is secreted by the posterior pituitary gland. the hormone vasopressin is an antidiuretic hormone which reduces the excretion of urine. diabetes insipidus is very uncommon.
diabetes mellitus is the most common diabetes it has two types type 1 which is an insulin dependent treatment involves managment of carbs insulin and diet. type 2 which is not insulin dependent but can progress into being insulin dependent. Type 1 diabetes is frequently called a severe or chronic form of diabetes. Type one is often classified as an auto immune disorder meaning the immune system attacks and kills the insulin producing cells of the pancreas resulting in an inability to produce insulin.
type 2 diabetes is know as the adult onset which is exacerbated by obesity and inactivity. type 2 diabetes is a a mild form of diabetes which can be reversed if treated and changes are made. type 2 diabetes is a result of the body not producing enough insulin, or having too much insulin resistance. managment of type 2 diabetes involves diet and exercise and can progress to insulin injections.
"wow I sure am thursty and my pee tasts sweet I might have diabetes mellitus"
"I feel slugish and have been overwait for years I might need to get tested to see if I have type 2 diabetes"
"I don't want juice I just want water, more water, I can't have enough water. Wow, you might have diabetes!"
