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 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)

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!"

A cursed disease in which you have to poke lancets on your skin then test with malfunctioning glucometers. Type I is juvenile while Type II is obesity-related.
Telling a fat person that they have diabetes is like telling a homosexual or sex addict that they have AIDS.

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.)

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!
