How Does Diabetes Transmit?

August 11, 2016 admin 7 comments

Diabetes is transmitted in a number of ways:


Genetically -  Type 1 Diabetes is evident in children from a young age and they are usually on Insulin injections for the rest of their life.


Pre-Diabetes is also prominent where there is a family history of Diabetes. If you have been recently diagnosed as diabetic or pre-diabetic, look around and you will find that you are not the first person with diabetes in your family.

According to the American Diabetes Association your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes is:


♦ One in Seven, if one of your parents was diagnosed before the age of 50

♦ One in Thirteen, if one of your parents was diagnosed after the age of 50

♦ One in Two, if both of your parents have diabetes

However, not all diabetes is due to genetic factors. Type 2 diabetes can develop due to poor diet and inadequate exercise.



Diabetes develops due to the following factors:


♦ Being Overweight

♦Having High Blood Pressure

♦ Having High Cholesterol

♦ Family history of diabetes

♦ Family history of Gestational Diabetes

♦ Ethnicity


The Gila River Indian Community, a Pima tribe in Arizona

has the highest rate of type 2 Diabetes in the world.

Statistics show that African - Americans, Asian - Americans,

Latino, Hispanic - Americans and Native Americans have a
greater disposition to Diabetes.
