LOL I like this. Just a couple off the top of my head.
-Wait, you are diabetic? You aren’t overweight.
-Isn’t diabetes all automated now?
-Why do you carry two phones? (people would always ask this relating to my Dex receiver although I won’t be getting this anymore now that I have the g5!!)
A mistaken impression repeatedly reinforced by two provisions of The Iron Rules of Hollywood, Subhead Diabetes, which provide that 1) “If there’s a diabetic in that movie, they’re gonna pass out” and 2) “If there’s a diabetic in that movie, they’re gonna need a shot!” Dunno if there are any documented cases in which this confusion led to the actual death of a T1 but it’s not for lack of trying.
Possibly. What I keep trying to remember is that there are many, many, many more types of diabetes than just the one I am familiar with. It’s easy for me to forget mostly, I suppose, because I spend so much time with myself.
I think I had read at one time that the word “diabetes” actually refers to excessive urination. But I had to Google it again to remember that.
My understanding of the terminology is that one cause of excessive urination which we are familiar with is high Blood Glucose. If you have excessive urination but normal BGs then I think that is referred to as Diabetes Insipidus.
