Diabetes is an inherent status effect.
Type 1 Edit
Type 1 Diabetes is characterized by loss of the insulin-producing beta cells of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, leading to a deficiency of insulin. The majority of type 1 diabetes is of the immune-mediated variety, where beta cell loss is a T-cell mediated autoimmune attack. There is no known preventive measure which can be taken against type 1 diabetes. Most affected people are otherwise healthy and of a healthy weight when onset occurs. Sensitivity and responsiveness to insulin are usually normal, especially in the early stages. Type 1 diabetes can affect children or adults but was traditionally termed "juvenile diabetes" because it represents a majority of the diabetes cases in children.
Type 2 Edit
Type 2 Diabetes is characterized by a status bar tracking the character's blood sugar, which can be raised by force-feeding the target Candy. When the target's blood sugar is up, its defenses are down, allowing for large amounts of damage to be done while the target struggles to control their Insulin. It is the type of diabetes Mobster Kingpin and DMK have. However, this status condition also allows MK to utilise advanced diabetes-related Combat Operandi: namely Insulin Shot, Summon Wilford Brimley and the deadly Type 2 Diabeat-down. After becoming DMK, MK uses the Battle Technique Roll for Dextrosity to fully cure his diabetes.
