What happens to a diabetic when they don't have their insulin?

I know a few diabetics and I have always wondered, what happens when a diabetic eats sugar and doesn't take their insulin?
What would happen if you didn't take your insulin for a few days?
I know there are other types of diabetes that do not require insulin, in that case, are there any signs to look out for that signify that someone is not taking their medicine?
