AnswerIf you eat a lot of sugar, you may become obese, which can lead to type 2 Diabetes.

Type one occurs when the immune system "attacks" the Insulin-producing beta cells located in the pancreas. Which means your body can no longer produce insulin for itself, in that case, you would need to take insulin injections for the rest of your life. It is unrelated to eating.

AnswerYou can eat your way into diabetes by eating these types of food to the extent that you are overweight, have high cholesteral, triglycerides and such. There are also other risk factors, but excess weight and lack of exercise increase your risk. AnswerNo. One cannot obtain diabetes by consuming too much sugar.

By consuming a lot of sugar, one may become obese. Obesity is a risk factor for diabetes.

AnswerWe do not completely understand why some people get diabetes and others don't. Genetics plays a role (family history) as does being over weight and getting too little exercise. It is possible that what you eat is also important with eating a lot of breads, pastas and sweets being more likely to cause diabetes than over-eating meats and fats. AnswerOnly Type 2 diabetes can be caused by the food you eat. Type 2 can be caused by poor diet, poor health and lack of exercise.

Type 1 however cannot be caused by diet. The causes of Type 1 are being researched but it definitely doesn't have anything to do with diet. Diet affects the overall well being of the sufferer but it isn't a cause.
