I don't think so, but I have to ask. Can a person only get diabetes if their family has a history of it, and they carry the hereditory gene?
Basically my brother eats a lot of junk, and has put on a lot of weight. The other weekend he and some friends went out, and my brother says he only had 6 drinks, but it doesn't explain why he was comatose and vomiting everywhere. The doctors thought possible drink spiking, but he has been called in for a emergency appointment regarding his blood test results (not the drug screen ones). They did a broad range blood testing for blood sugars, iron levels, white cell count, organ function and so forth the day he went to the doctor, and had to go for the drug one at a later date because he had to fast.
At a wild guess I suggested they may want to do a diabetes test because his sugar levels may not have been normal. But he is now going on some huge rant that he is safe to eat anything and everything he wants and it won't give him diabetes, because we have no family history. I think thats bull because I am certain that it is not only hereditory.
I would google, but I'm on my phone.
