If kyle is a diabetic why do we never see or hear of him taking insulin?

A) He's pre-diabetic, and doesn't take insulin
2. ...
D) They just don't show him doing it.

Stan has asthma, but you never see him using an inhaler.

Anyway, not all diabetics need to take insulin. In fact, most of them take oral medications, and some of them can manage it by just changing their diets and exercising more often.

Although, at his age, Kyle would probably need to take insulin. Oral medication is for people whose diabetes appears later in life.

Now that I think about it, you never see Phillip taking insulin either. :tp:

There is a lot that is left unaddressed. Like, Mackey being married. That was never addressed during his fling with Chokesondick.

Hmm..

What episode says Kyle is a diabetic? Since when does Stan have asthma? Mackey was married? I must not pay as close attention as I thought I did.

Well, I can come up with two plausible reasons why we wouldn't ever see Kyle taking insulin:
1. He goes somewhere private like a bathroom to inject himself.
2. He has a pump and we just haven't seen him inputting his dosages.

I would think that their marriage ended in India after he was abducted and taken back home. Thats why she was never mentioned again. Plus, many of those early episodes don't tie back in to the rest of the series.
