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.

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!

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
