Answer #2

It depends what you are talking about. Type I diabetes is where your body doesnt make enough insulin. This can be caused by genetic abnormalies, pancreatic cells dying, the pancreas being removed etc. Type II is caused by a number of factors, which include genetic predisposition and lifestyle factors. A diet high in sugar does contribute to type II diabetes but its not as simple as that and there are many factors involved.
