[IP] discrepancy

> I have a question from a friend of mine - his father is a type 2 IDMM (age

I see a discrepancy in that statement. IDDM is Type 1 (insulin dependent
diabetes mellitus). Type 2 is DM. My endo says to find out which one you
are, don't take your insulin for 3 days - if you're dead, then sure enough
you *were* Type 1.  DON'T TRY IT!!!  Just kidding. But seriously, type 2's
may take insulin, but are not *dependent* to live.
