More common names for diabetes[edit]

Why ever does this article refer to "Type One diabetes" (a widely used term), but then go on to refer to "secondary diabetes" (which is not a widely used term at all)? Surely the term which should have been used here was the more commonly used term of "Type Two diabetes"? ACEOREVIVED (talk) 22:14, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Exocrine component of pancreas[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

There is no reason for this article to be separate; the short size and nature of the Pancreas article bears witness to this; this article would be of better quality and more utility to readers if it was provided with the context that the pancreas article bestows LT910001 (talk) 02:02, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

I have completed this merge. --LT910001 (talk) 14:58, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Anatomy: size error![edit]

There is no way the pancreas is "5.75–9.5 cm long"! The German Wikipedia says 16-20 cm and I think this is more realistic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.202.184.53 (talk) 12:47, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out, IP editor. I'd encourage you to create an account and contribute further to the encyclopedia! --Tom (LT) (talk) 21:25, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
