Diabeties can these days be controlled and is "soon" reckoned to be "cured". It depends upon the type, and severity....their Doctor should make recommendations...


Amazing - mention Diabetes and the world stops with shock - "he's got diabetes "---- watch the horror. But say " he's had a heart attack " and it only gets a mild eyebrow lift.

So why the predudice ? -- suspect it's like that against some older folk - old = incapable.(some are - but then some of the rest are sick of the predudice)
