    I never knew this and never saw this particular set of evidence, but I can't say I'm surprised to see the correlation. Just another way to keep people from falling into harmful drinking habits, so I hope more people see this.

    Diabetes may have a reputation for being "Manageable" and some even dicriminate agianst diabetics for being overweight or lazy, but that only applies to Type II diabetes. Type I diabetes is a nightmare. People born with this disease can never have a normal diet and many die young. The stress and pressure of the disease can drive people to drugs and alcohol, which is the last thing people with this disease need.
