No it does not exist, diabetes is actually the same high blood sugar. you do not have to break your brains to understand this. Why are you so bothered of the thing? If someone does not know it is not their problem you should educate them on this and say both are the same and what happens if some one is affected by Diabetes.

I have a friend that has a cyst that covers most of his right ear and a small cyst that seems to inflame when his blood sugars are high. He has been diabetic since he was 4 yrs old, he is now 33. My concern now is that he gets dizzy and he has been having low temperatures; 96.7, 96.5? Is there anything that should be checked? What can we do right now to help with the dizziness?

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
