What are the chances of me getting diabetes?

Chris asked:

I was wondering what the chances of me are of getting diabetes. My grand mom has diabetes(well I think she does she has a machine to check her blood sugar but i never saw her inject herself with insolen) and both of her sisters sons also have diabetes. I think there are about 1 or 2 more people who have it but I cant think of them.

Also does your diet have any effect on wether you can get diabetes or not and how often should I get checked for it?

  1. There is a possibility you can get it. Cut down or keep away from sugars, sweets and carbs.

    There are 2 different types of diabetes- one type has to do with your diet and the other does not. Your age is a huge factor in determining the risk of Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes does result from your diet but don’t you don’t have to go total heath freak to prevent it. It is very common in the older population as well. Even though it does have a genetic component, your weight, eating/drinking habits, exercise, weight, ect all play a role in the development of the disease. I wouldn’t worry yourself about it though, but your age does matter in the answer to your question.

  3. well there is a possibility u can get it. You just need to keep a healthy diet and exercise.And yeah try to keep away from like all the sugary stuff and learn to read the labels on the boxes.You can sometimes add A LITTLE BIT of sugar to your diet so your blood sugar doesn’t go too low.
