Can you get diabetes if you eat a lot of sweets?
cuz i love sugar and chocolates,can this cause diabetes later on in life?

Cheat Sum
I think it can increase your chances of getting diabetes.

Fat people usually gets diabetes anyways.


If you gain a large ammount of weight it can trigger Type 2 diabetes. Eating candy alot won't damage you unless you stay healthy and fit.

Absolutely. Not guaranteed, but you run a much higher risk of it.

Eat a balanced diet. Fruits and vegies have an uncountable number of nutrients that are great for you. Fruits are sweet, and much better for you. Less available and less "fun". But much better for you.

eating too many sweets isnt what causes diabetes...thats a myth. eating too many sweets will eventually make you fat though...and being overweight does increase your chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

Since you have gotten some conflicting information, I will try to clarify this for you.

You CANNOT get diabetes simply from eating too much sugar. If your pancreas functions as it should, it is able to release insulin into your bloodstream to metabolize the sugar and convert it to energy.

You CAN get diabetes (type 2) from being overweight. Eating a lot of unhealthy foods often leads to weight issues. THAT can lead to diabetes. Type 2s in general are mildly to morbidly overweight, lead a sedentary lifestyle (do not get any exercise) and take poor care of themselves.

*This is not meant in any way, shape or form to offend any Type 2s*

Type 1 diabetes is considered an autoimmune disorder. Yes, some people are born with it or diagnosed at a very early age (infants). Autoimmune means that the body attacks itself, destroying the cells that produce insulin, leaving your body unable to manufacture it. Type 1s need to take insulin injections several times a day and monitor their blood sugar carefully just to survive. That's in addition to diet changes, exercise regimens and general health care. Type 1 used to be called juvenile diabetes because it mainly appeared in childhood. Now it is referred to as Type 1 because while it is rare, it can appear in adulthood (20s) but is even more rarely seen after age 30.

Type 2s can generally manage their diabetes with diet, exercise and oral medications. Some Type 2s need insulin. With Type 2 diabetes, insulin is either not utilized correctly by the body or the body does not manufacture enough. Type 1s have generally suffered pancreatic failure and produce no insulin. That is why they must take it by injection.

I'm a type 1, diagnosed at age 26. I use an insulin pump. I'm 5'7" and weigh 135 pounds. I swim and lift weights for exercise. I test my sugar 6-8 times a day. I watch what I eat and stick to my diet. I do allow myself a treat once in a while. I take care of myself because I want to be here for a long time to come. I'm only 37.

I try
The sugar no.

Gaining weight from eating all the sugar yes.

Myth #3 Eating too much sugar causes diabetes.
No. Diabetes is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. However, being overweight does increase your risk for developing type 2 diabetes. If you have a history of diabetes in your family, eating a healthy meal plan and regular exercise are recommended to manage your weight.
