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.

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.
