Who Gets Diabetes?

Almost anyone and everyone can get Diabetes. Some people are more likely than others though.

People of Aboriginal descent are 3 to 5 times more likely to develop diabetes, than the general public. Those with African and Hispanic heritage living within North America are also said to have a higher chance to develop diabetes. Many of these risk factors, based on ethniticity are primary factors for developing Type 1 Diabetes.

One major factor is family history! If you family history shows Diabetes throughout your family, you have an increased Risk of Developing Diabetes.

The risks of developing Type 2 Diabetes are your age (usually in people over 45 years old), obesity, and having a history of glucose tolerance problems.
