I thought it had been too long since we'd seen Doug around. I would think being a glazed doughnut would make him more likely to have diabetes, being so sweet and all.... :P

Yay! Nuts. And it's true, so many people are potentially at risk to develop adult diabetes and don't know it.

Actually, we don't say "adult" or "juvenile" diabetes anymore. Even adults over the age of 60 can suddenly have type 1 diabetes, and in today's high fat/carbohydrate low activity world, even children can be diagnosed with type 2. The difference between the two is that type 1 is an auto-immune deficiency where the immune system starts attacking the pancreas. Type 2 is caused by a combination of problems but is not immune system oriented. :D
