  • Jay Cutler diagnosed with diabetes

    http://www.denverpost.com/rapids/ci_9124884

    type 1, that sucks. I feel bad for the guy but from that, it doesn't seem too serious and shouldn't affect his play.

      Damn, this is really bad. No matter how you spin it, getting diagnosed with diabetes is horrible.

      I've met people that have had diabetes, and nicks and cuts that would be insignificant to most people have to be taken care of very cautiously when you have diabetes. Higher risk of infection i believe.

      This sucks when you're a football player and are banged up week in and week out.

        actually, Diabetes is really manageable if you know how to take care of yourself...

        if he maintains his active lifestyle (which is a given) and eats right...he should be fine...

            Depends on which type you have. Type 2 is somewhat manageable is most cases. Type one is real serious, How old is he, 23, 24? Usually it sets in much before that hence, " juvenile diabetes". He'll have to be careful with his kidneys and injuries in his extremities, his vision will eventually be affected as well, and He'll have difficulties staying hydrated. He's going to have to be careful managing his blood sugar levels during games, and practices. When blood sugar is out of whack a diabetic is not a normal functioning person. I'd be willing to bet that he won't have much of a career now due to this, who knows though Adam Morrison is doing OK with it.I guess that's just more of an opinion of mine. Regardless, he's going to have to take excellent care of himself to play pro football.

            What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
            they get smoked.

                  Based on every male in my family being a diabetic, including myself. Excellent point on me not knowing **** about subject though. It's hard for a person without the disease to understand what it feels like.So, I guess that would make you the one "who dosen't have a bloody clue what they're talking about"? To think that someone life goes on find and dandy after getting diabetes is asinine. Managing diabetes, especially type one is no fun task, let alone play pro football with it.

                    Ditto that man, My prayers are definitely with him, Sucks to see someone so young and promising diagnosed with this, poor guy. I

                    'm sure He'll give Diabetes a fight though and thoroughly kick its ass, Cutler is just one of those kind of guys, He wont let this drag him down a bit.

                      Kendall Simmons has type 2 diabetes and he has had a hard time with fatigue and staying hydrated. It's especially noticeable during hotter games.

                          I'm sure it is. Every time I work out really hard or for too long I have to slam some freaking Orange juice from going into zombie mode.

                              That sucks! So just to be clear he has type 1 which is considered more serious and worse? I'm sorry but I'm ignorant about diabetes.
