Are there any foods she can't eat that are relevant? So people think she's obeying Jewish dietary laws, but really she can't eat them because of her diabetes?
Do the people who think this know she is diabetic? If they did know, would they still think she was a very Orthodox Jew?

Do the people who think this know she is diabetic? possibly If they did know, would they still think she was a very Orthodox Jew? probably, unless they were as clever as the people on this forum!!

Does Della do something relevant because of her diabetes? Or not do something? Something that causes people to think she is Jewish?
Are any of the following things relevant about diabetics:
Taking insulin injections?
Controlling what they eat?
Having to eat regular meals?
Hyper/hypoglycaemic shock?
Something else that happens to them if they aren't careful?

Is there a relevant fact about diabetes that the people thinking she is Jewish don't know?

Are any Jewish rules relevant? Attending services? Jewish customs? Celebrations? Any relevant Jewish people?
Could people think Della was a non-Orthodox Jew for the same reason?

Is the thing that people think she does because she's Jewish something prescribed in the Torah? In Genesis? Leviticus? Numbers? Deuteronomy? Exodus?
Is it anything to do with what she eats?
Does she do this thing regularly? More than once a day? Once a day? Every few days? every week? every month? every year?
Do the people who think she is an Orthodox Jew have anything in common other than the fact that they know she does the thing she does?
Does she have any relevant contact with any actual Jews? Orthodox Jews?

Is the thing that people think she does because she's Jewish something prescribed in the Torah? I think so but am not sure In Genesis? Leviticus? Numbers? Deuteronomy? Exodus? I have no idea--I'm an ugnoramous about the Bible
Is it anything to do with what she eats? no
Does she do this thing regularly? yes More than once a day? Once a day? Every few days? every week? every month? every year? Every day is best
Do the people who think she is an Orthodox Jew have anything in common other than the fact that they know she does the thing she does? Well, they need some knowledge about Orth. Judaism, but it's knowledge many people have
Does she have any relevant contact with any actual Jews? no Orthodox Jews? no

Does it have to do with praying at a certain time? A certain number of times per day? Does it have to do with when she has her alarm set to go off so she remembers to take her medication?

While I'm not Jewish (Orthodox or otherwise) I should have an edge here...

She's type-2? Anything about using the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator/lift? To get her cells using the sugar? So they think she's observing the Sabbath?

Yes, I'm diabetic, but not on medication. And being Jewish is more an ethnicity than a religion - I know several atheist Jews (it surprised me to learn that - I had always thought of it as a religion).

So it's not about food (at least noishly); presumably it's about exercise? Or physical activity? Is it related to physical activity after meals?

And being Jewish is more an ethnicity than a religion - I know several atheist Jews (it surprised me to learn that - I had always thought of it as a religion).As a self-proclaimed citizen of the world, I have no ethnicity as well as no religion. But there are certainly athesis Jews--most of the people I grew up among fitted this category

We've already established it has nothing to do with eating certain foods (kosher)? Does it have to do with what she wears (i.e. covering her hair)?

Does her personal choice/taste involve her...
Appearance?
Music?
Books?
Jewelry?
Clothes?
Hobbies?
Mode of transportation?

Does it make her skin baggy? create some sort of rash? cause her to gain weight?

Is there a device that she has to wear in order to monitor her vital signs? no A heart monitor? no A blood sugar monitor? no Something that administers her medication? no And she doesn't want people to see her equipment? no

Actually diabetes is more likely to make one lose weight. She could have some issues due to poor circulation, I suppose, if she'd let her blood glucose levels get out-of-control for a while.

Because she's diabetic, her doctor made her watch what she eats? So she lost 100 lbs or so? Or is it genetic and she's losing weight to keep from getting full blown diabetes? And now her clothes don't fit? Thus they are baggy? Or her skin is sagging and she doesn't want anybody to see it?

When the body isn't using sugar effectively it doesn't add calories, which is one way - the other is through diet and exercise (I've experienced both). But I haven't had to cover up, except that I get colder than I used to (less insulation). On the other hand I've lost something less than 40 pounds overall (my maximum was around 205 - like the photo in my profile).

*********SPOILER *************
When Della got Type 2 diabetes, she had to lose 100 pounds. So she ended up flabby & now always wears long sleeves & pants or long skirts & tights to hide the flab. Because she has a Jewish name & appearance, people sometimes assume she's an Orthodox Jew who covers herself for religious reasons.You may not be surprised to hear that Della is your own Felicia Nimue, who, although never diabetic,lost even more weight than Della & ended up flabby. Why does no one ever ask me if I'm Amish? Well, I dress very flamboyantly, use lots of makeup, & love technology. And an Amish woman would never be a professor--they don't even go to high school!! Please check out my new puzzle!!
