Is it dia-beat-as or di-a-beat-ees

it is die-a-beet-ees

you van say it either way but i think the proper one is dia-beat-ess like dy-uh-beet-est with out the t at the end

most pepolpe say dy-uh-bee-tees tho...

i say dye-a-bee-tees...but people say it both ways. i personally dont like the way wilford brimley says it in those diabetes commericials...dahy-uh-bee-tis....its annoying
