    The correct question is: What is diabetes?

    Not, what "are" diabetes?

    The word is not plural just because it ends with an "s"

    Diabetes it's a disease when your body doesn't produce enough insulin. And insulin is neaded to burn the sugar in your body..

    It is not clear how people get dieabetes, scientist are working on that. but there are still some reasons such as very low imunity, or genetics,or if you are too emotional, and were worring about something too much.

    I know for a fact thaqt genetics should be involved in diabetes, but it doesn't always mean that if your father is diabetic you will also get it. Genes work in a very strange way, it might be that your grandchild might get or even not, you can never tell that.

    Generally there are no symptoms of getting diabetes, when you notice those symptoms you already have dieabetes. such symptoms are: constant thirst, hunger, rapid weight loss, feeling tired, goint in bathroom too often..

    If you worry that much about it, you can go to doctor and check you blood suger once in every year, in that case you will be sure you don't have it.

    Diabetes is a disease where your body doesn't produce enough insulin. Thats like the sugars or staches your eat don't convert to energy. There is two types of diabetes though. And it's not contageous so you can't get it by like sharing stuff with someone that has diabetes. Diabetes just develops. Signs for diabetes are stuff like a big weight loss, and attitude change. I don't know if your a fan of the jonas brothers but nick jonas has type one diabetes and thats where I learned about it. This is a good video,

    Type 2 diabetes, usually referred to as adult onset, is when your body produces insulin but can not use it properly. This type can be treated successfully with the right diet and exercise in most circumstances. Read here

    If blood sugars are not kept under control at some point insulin will probably be integrated / oral medications are also available. People with diabetes can live long, happy lives but must be diligent in their care and make sure you see your endocrinologist on a regular basis.
