Default 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.

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.

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.

Yeah, type one is more serious, It means your body produces little or no insulin. Type two means your body basically rejects the insulin that is produced, and is manageable with medicine or a strict diet and exercise.

Top of the line medical care can only do some much for a person with this disease...Something someone with it would know from first hand experience, not some NFLDC mod with no understanding of it. "top end medical care" can surly help, but it's not going to prevent every freaking hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia incident a diabetic has as they can be completely unpredictable. The fact that I, some random kid, with the same disease gives me a deal of bearing on it than you. How in the hell is the " top end medical" care going to help him if he takes a bad shot to one of his Kidneys?which is very serious for a diabetic. How about if he were to cut his throwing hand and it took weeks instead of days to heal correctly? Or how about for instance he breaks his foot like Rodgers and it takes forever( if ever) to heal properly?

Well, this comment here perfectly portrays how badly you're talking out of your ass on the subject matter... Blood sugar levels influence a diabetic a little more than " making someone a little tired". I mean, it's not like those diabetic comas are a serious deal, or the fact it's the leading cause of heart and kidney problems. Those puppies sure as **** are not important to an athlete.

I think someones just upset their little playboy could be in jeopardy and dosen't want to admit it. You can sit here and argue until carpal tunnels sets in, but any way you look at it this is not good news for the knife and his football career.

By the way, real classy of you to condescendingly mock my diabetes with that juice comment too. I'd love to see you live with it for a day and see how funny it was then.

I actually would prefer if this thread didn't get locked by page 3 but that seems to be where its headed with useless post...Sad to hear though, I really like Cutler and believe he can be an elite qb, hopefully this doesn't slow him down and I wish him the best...Really excited to see how him and Marshall grow.

I posted this in the Bronco Forums,

I myself have type 2 diabetes, it's considered quite easier to manage then type 1. I really feel bad for anyone who gets type 1. I wouldn't wish type 1 diabetes upon my worst enemies. Adam Morrison has diabetes 1 and plays in the NBA, I don't follow the Bobcats too closely to really make any sort of statement if it effects his play however.

The real problem with Diabetes for athletes, especially football players is getting hit in the kidneys, or hurting a foot. A good shot to the kidneys on someone with type one could be fatal. It isn't a joke what so ever. Simple Injuries also will take much longer to heal while being diabetic. Getting nicked up now becomes a serious issue.

Diabetes is one of those things that really is hard to understand unless you go through it yourself. I personally played DT my junior year of high school and had UConn ready to offer me a scholarship to play D1 football. During the summer before my senior year I just started to be tired all the time, the doctors had no idea what was wrong with me. Finally my grandmother who has diabetes made me test my blood glucose levels on her Glucometer, my sugar was at 497.

My body deteriorated over that summer and winter, and upon the advice of my doctors I was forced to sit out my senior year, and stop playing football all together. Sadly this is more serious then Bronco fans may want it to be, I wish Jay the best and hope he has a safe road to his management of his diabetes, and hope him nothing but the best. Even if he was the QB for the raiders, he would have my deepest sympathy

could actually make him a better qb with the strict nutrition, exercise and lifestyle he'll lead.

if it was an issue i think shanny wouldve drafted a qb in the middle rounds
