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.

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.

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!

Diabetes is a God forsaken disease. There are two main causes to this, for type 1 your pancreas simply fails on you, it was not their fault. On the other hand type 2 was definitely their fault for eating too many twinkies and big macs. Both types of diabetes may need insulin injections to regulate blood sugar. Type 1 diabetics will always have to either inject themselves, or get a manual pump. Type 2 diabetics may need injections, depending on their conditions. Hypo glycemic is when someone's blood sugar is very low, this could lead to a coma, or death. Hyper glycemic is when someone has too high of a blood star count, these effects include, vomiting, nausea, and lethargy. Please trust this information, I myself am a type1 diabetic, and at most I take 7 shots a day
