it may but for the most part, it will not give you Type 1...this is only caused by genetic factors.  Improper diet will and has been known to cause Type2 so if you are worried, follow a strike diet and talk to a nutritionist about your worries.  Not to mention that since you have no one in your family with Type 1 your chances are slim, yes you could be a one in  a million chance, but it is still a limited possibilty.
