then its their choice, which can cost them their life.

The consequences are always bleak if sugar control is not tight. But you cannot make someone do something they are not willing to do. You can advise and then leave them alone.

I'm thinking they might go into a diabetic coma had have a seizure.

My husband does this. He won't take his insulin and so his blood sugar goes way high. Then He starts losing weight, being thirsty all the time, gets "fuzzy headed" (not good judgment) then gets dehydrated. When he gets too dehydrated he will pass out when he tries to stand up. Then we have to call ambulance to come get him and take him to hosp/ER to get IV's. He's on insulin.

His blood sugar will be high then he will go into a comma and if he doesn't treated he will die

And, I might add that you loose fingers, toes, limbs, sight, kidney function, and have other major organ failure (including the heart) along with the associated suffering. In my opinion it's a form of suicide.

liver failure, blindness loss of extremeties, sterility if a male, unconsciousness, death

They can get a low blood sugar and then they'll get an insulin reaction which then can result in seizures or eventually death.

If he is fully insulin dependent, then refusing to take his medication means that he will ultimately go into ketoacidosis, and die. Insulin is necessary for our body cells to use the glucose that we create by breaking down the foods we eat. If it can't get into the cells to nourish the cells, then the cells have no means to function. The body will do its best to call on any reserves it has, but ultimately, a person who cannot make his own insulin must either take insulin by injection, insulin pump, or similar means, or he will die.

This is NOT an insulin reaction, by the way; that is when you have too *much* insulin, and the blood sugar drops because it has all been used. It can occur when a person takes too much insulin, doesn't eat enough after taking insulin, or deals with stress in the form of unexpected exercise, illness, or emotional stress.

The next step is diabetic coma. The risky thing about that is there are alot of side symptoms that come with that: possible blindness, more medicines or insulin to take, gange green, oh so many things. Also, the biggy you might not come out of the coma.

death,so don't try

Nonketotic hyperosmolar coma.
In other words, the symptoms start out with drinking and peeing a lot. The sugar goes very high. The complications include accelerated kidney disease, heart and blood vessel disease, blindness, and increased infections with possible amputations as feet start to get gangrene. Of course, getting a sugar so high that you get hyperosmolar and get really sick and have to go to the hospital is also a problem. Now this is for a type II diabetic. An insulin dependent diabetic will die without the insulin as they go into diabetic ketoacidosis. Not a pretty picture!

They can have adverse consequences - such as blindness, kidney failure, gangrene leading to limb amputation, strokes, blindness, coma and death. Sorry to be so blunt. I have had family with brittle Type I and Type II diabetics. I have seen all of the above and it isn't pretty.

They need psychological counseling. Diabetes is not a death sentence. It can be managed. But it takes the patient an enormous amount of committment. It is a constant battle and it does not go away. It isn't always easy. Diabetics need support from their family and understanding. Please talk to them and get help. This won't go away. The above effects can happen over time or sometimes very suddenly. Some people resent the disease and turn their backs on it, thinking it will go away. Others simply deny it. Still others just give up. Depression is very common.

It is good that they have someone so concerned ( like you). I really urge you to talk to them, try to get them to get help. Diabetic counseling is much more than the nuts and bolts of testing, vigilance and nutritional counseling - it really needs to contain psych counseling as well.

Good luck!
