There are two types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is when the pancreas doesn't function properly and type 2 is when you are over weight and it starts causing health problems. It really makes me mad when we are watching a health video in class and people say "diabetes is cause when you are over weight." I have diabetes myself and my friends or people I know look at me and judge me. People need to get it right. People need to become more educated on this subject.

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?"

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.

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.

diabetes is a disease that makes you cuss incesently and makes you extremely irritable(especially when you have doctors that dont know what they're doing and numbers more off the wall than a baby who drinks coffee.)
Ive had diabetes for 12 years, and i have a heck of a time telling people what it is!

Type one is when your body produces little or no insulin, mostly in juvenile patients but can be diagnosed at any age. You usually either have to take shots daily or you have an insulin pump. Most people (of both types) test regularly(at least 4 times a day)

type two is when someone is(generally) overweight, and cannot produce enough insulin to reach all places of the body. they usually have to have pills to help.
Well, I have type 1 and i hate life. If you get diabetes...good luck living a normal life!
