i have been tired of mom's warnings telling that excess intake of sugar will cause diabetes which results in a number of serious ailments... is it true that sugar intake is related to getting diabetic??? i have had my blood sugar test almost an year back and there was no sign of any increased sugar level...
According to the American Diabetes Association, eating a lot of sugar does not cause diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by genetics, Type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics and lifestyle. Being overweight will increase your risk of developing diabetes. A diet high in calories (whether those calories are from sugar or from fat) can lead to you being overweight which is one of the risk factors for diabetes. I hope this answers your question.
