    You don’t HAVE to be overweight to get diabetes, but obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes. Diabetes is hereditary, so you can get it from your parents or grandparents.

    I can tell you what will happen if you ignore diabetes, because I did. I was always thirsty, like insanly thirsty. It was nothing for me to go through 2 large jugs of water a day. You’ll start feeling more and more lathargic as your blood sugar rises, and eventually you’ll end up with Pancreatitis, which is when your pancreas shuts down and stops creating insulin. When this happens you can’t keep any food or water down, you start throwing up everything you take in, you feel week, and if you’re unlucky enough for your blood sugar to creep over 400, you can possibly go into a coma.

    It’s not fun, trust me. If you think you may have it, get tested. I put it off and I spent a week in the hospital getting fed through an IV. When I went in, my blood sugar was 340, and I felt really, really bad.
