Is diabetes related to eating sugar?

So far, there is no scientific evidence that eating too much sugar will cause diabetes. The causes of diabetes are extremely complex, involving genetics, infections, genetic variation, environment, diet, etc. If a person is obese or overweight, the risk of diabetes is of course higher than that of normal weight. But obesity or being overweight is not the "credit" of the sugar family, but the result of the combined action of "sugars + lipids".

Sugar, also known as carbohydrates, includes polysaccharides, monosaccharides, and disaccharides, such as white sugar, brown sugar, and rock sugar. If the "sugar" is a polysaccharide carbohydrate, eating more will not cause diabetes. In the past, we ate foods that were mainly high in carbohydrates. The prevalence of diabetes was not only low, but rather low.

But if we often eat monosaccharides and disaccharides including candy, white sugar, brown sugar, rock sugar, etc., it will cause diabetes. In western developed countries, the prevalence of diabetes is significantly higher than that of our country, and their consumption of sugar consumption is significantly higher than that of our country. Studies have shown that ingesting a large amount of monosaccharides and disaccharides, one can increase the obesity rate, thereby increasing the number of diabetic patients, and the second will make many recessive diabetic patients quickly become dominant, which is especially obvious in the elderly.
