    It sux but with the technologie today it is very manageable if you work at it. Cutler will be fine he has good work ethic and has the money to get the technologie and care he needs.

      I'm a Diabetic and it won't mean squat to Cutler. Team doctors will monitor his illness very effectively. The effects of Diabetes isn't felt for 20 years even if you don't manage the illness very well. When it is managed well, you may never suffer the effects.
      Cutler will be long retired before he'll ever have to worry about the illness.
      And proud of it!!!

        I'm type 1 also and have been for 18 years and outside of the fact I run a 5.2 40 and only weight 170 lbs I could play in the NFL. As stated above the effects probably won't be felt with Cutler until well after his playing days. The only potential issue I can see is that depression is ramant in diabectics and though it usually comes later in the disease I can only imagine what an NFL QB has to deal with on a daily basis. I'm a Chiefs fan so it's hard for me to cheer for any Bronco, but I will be hoping that Cutler succeeds with the disease and helps bring more awarness to others about it.

            We had a diabetic on our football team, nothing slowed him down, i didnt really know that he was diabetic until i saw his machine that he carries around its about the size of a beeper and i think it tells him what his sugar level is

              So Cutler's body is exactly the same make-up as yours? Or did you play QB with type 1 diabetes in the NFL before?

                Uh, what? Effects aren't felt for 20 years? How about when someone gets high/low BS levels... Don't feel that? Sure he likely won't go blind or have his leg chopped off anytime soon but he's still going to notice it.

                Also my best friend has been a type 1 diabetic for 10 years and the doctors have already told him he won't make it another ten because he dosen't take care of himself.

                I guess the best way to explain it would be like asthma not because they are similiar diseases but because it tends acute and can potentially have severe immediate symptoms. They are also both manageable, especially with medicine, but you still have to be very careful.

                they get smoked.

                  That sucks, but he'll have the best medical treatment money can buy so he should be alright

                    I made the NFLDC comment because you made the random NFLDC poster comment to me... See the correlation, brah?
                    "he won't have much of a career due to this", which was the ridiculous statement i disagreed with in the first place.
                    I said it was an opinion of mine. I had based it on one of my friends who had to stop playing football. Admittedly, Perhaps I stated it a bit insinuatingly.
                    I also said that it was possible for him to still playing... Read Adam Morrison comment?

                    that'd be like suggesting that calvin johnson won't have much of a career because he could potentially get hit in the knee. you list a number of scenarios that are, for the most part unlikely. do you honestly think the broncos are going to let him lapse into a diabetic coma on the sidelines by refusing to do anything whatsoever to help his blood sugar, or are you being intentionally hyperbolic to make your point seem stronger? i mean, christ, what if he tripped over terrell davis's dog in a driveway and slipped on a mcdonald's bag into his tv all at the same time? it's clear he won't have much of a career if that happens.
                    No, it wouldn't because Calvin Johnson having a knee injury is an " if" diabetes is a more of a " when" scenario, it cannot be eluded. He's not going to go into a coma on the sidelines... But if you knew anything about diabetes you could recognize one dosen't have to lapse into a coma to be effected. The examples I provided were simply possible scenarios which could take place ( which was reasonably obvious). It's not possible to avoid the disease all together no matter what you do, it is possible to avoid tripping over a ******* dog for the most part. Perhaps, by say, not buying one? You can't not have diabetes.

                    Is it uncommon to injury an organ in football? Ask Chris Simms. It is hard to injure you're throwing hand? Ask Lord Favre. How about to get dehydrated? ask Kory Stringer. These are all risks that are more highlighted by diabetes, that was my point.

                    It dosen't matter what kind of medical attention Jay has if HE dosen't manage it himself. If he dosen't cooperate with them correctly and manage his diet and such it dosen't make a difference if the Ponies have the Mayo clinic on staff. Sure, it's advantageous to have a group essentially watching over you if something goes wrong, but he's got to do it himself.

                    given that i was referencing your OWN POST about needing to slam some OJ after working out or you go into "zombie mode". you mean to tell me that if his blood sugar got completely hosed, bad things might happen?! well holy ****. again, this has absolutely nothing to do with the original
                    What? I said this to another user and then you saw the need to bring it into the discussion... Of course it had nothing to do with the original argument, I stated it to another user... not you... You decided to bring it in In .
                    argument, which was, if you haven't been paying attention, that comparing getting tired yourself after working out (or going into zombie mode, whatever tf that means), is a compeltely ridiculous and irrelevant comparison to a pro athlete. unless, of course, you have a doctor hovering over your shoulder at all times to monitor your levels and make any appropriate changes to maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level. but yeah, again. the broncos team doctors will probably let him lapse into a diabetic coma on the sideline. fantastic argument.
                    Well this right here showed you're talking out of your ass again. Zombie mode is a reference ( that anyone who knew jack **** about diabetes) could relate to instead of saying " being tired". When a diabetic is severely low they can't think, talk, or function. That has essentially nothing to do with the argument but it just showed how far out of your element you actually are Donnie.

                    Why would it be irrelevant to a pro athlete, because he plays pro sports his body is able to handle diabetes differently? Every diabetic has doctors that regularly monitor their health. However, It dosen't require a doctor to tell a diabetic whats going on with their diabetes, it's something the individual can feel themselves, easily. ( again, something anyone who knew **** about diabetes would know) . No matter who's watching over him, at some point his diabetes is going to effect him one way or another.

                    if you can't, i'd suggest you stop making yourself look bad.
                    Judging by the responses of gotten, I think you're the one who is making them self look bad.

                    someone already brought up magic johnson (with aids). i'd hate to do it again.
                    What the hell does aids have to do with diabetes? Fantastic argument.

                    but keep making this about me mocking your disease so you can ignore the fact that i'm mocking a crap argument.
                    Ah.... the only reason I brought it up was because it was a dick thing to say. There was a condescending shot( no pun intended) about diabetes in there and you know it.

                    Bottom line... yeah, he's probably not going to drop over dead on the football feild in the home opener or get his leg hacked off two seasons from now, but it's surely going to change his football career.

                      Well, I know one of my friends stopped playing high school football because of diabetes type 1. He is son of the richest family in Panama and not even all of the medical treatment could help him. I am not clear what was wrong with him, but he told me he had to quit due to the diabetes.

                          Damn, that is crazy.

                          My grandma has type two and it definitely affects her. Circulation is affected, and things tend to affect her a bit longer.

                          But I think Cutler should be fine for the most part during his football playing career. He should have the tools around him to do that. After that, I'm not so sure.

                            My grandfather had Diabetes for 15 years, it's an awful disease, but when you control your diet and take your insulin, you can still have a normal life.'

                            btw, I have asthma and whoever compared the two is missing a few key differences.

                              I am going to have to agree with Title Town in this argument. My girlfriend has diabetes and her dad is a doctor and that still doesnt keep her from getting really sick. Not to mention when DKA sets in it can get really bad to the point where she loses her own breath just sitting down. She also keeps a healthy diet and works out. The fact is that there is no cure for diabetes and top of the line medical care isnt going to make it go away. Not to mention its easy to get seizures when you dont keep yourself hydrated.
