    u gotta b more specific. what data are u looking at? if ur looking at glucose levels in the blood then someone with diabetes would have unusually high levels of glucose since the pancreas (beta cells on the islets of langerhans) cant make insulin & therefore glucose cannot be converted to glycogen blah blah blah.. or if its glucose levels in urine then there found be traces of glucose whereas in a healthy person there would be no glucose.... the homeostatic dysfunction is the fact that they cannot produce insulin therefore cannot keep glucose levels at homeostasis, thus producing 'abnormal data'.
