Today World Diabetes Day is being celebrated all over the world. On this day, awareness is spread about diabetes and ways to avoid it are conveyed to the people. There are many types of questions in the minds of people regarding diabetes. In colloquial language, we know diabetes by the name of sugar. There is often a question in people’s mind that if a person or a parent in the family has diabetes, then how much is the risk of this disease to the child. According to health experts and research, if one of the parents has type 2 diabetes, then the risk of having this disease in the child increases up to 4 times. On the other hand, if both parents have type 2 diabetes, then the risk of diabetes in the child increases by 50%. The reason for this is the genes received from the parents.
Type 1 diabetes is genetic
There are two types of diabetes, first type one and second type two diabetes. Type one diabetes is mostly due to genetics. That is, if parents, grandparents have had sugar problems in the past, then the risk of type one diabetes in the child also increases. The problem of type one diabetes can be seen in the child even from birth. This is because due to genetic reasons, insulin production stops in the pancreas.
Type 2 diabetes is caused by poor lifestyle
Out of the total cases of diabetes worldwide, 90% of the cases are of type two diabetes. Research suggests that if a person in the family has type 2 diabetes, then it can happen to the child as well. Jeans also have an important role in this. At the same time, due to poor lifestyle, type 2 diabetes also occurs. Apart from family history, type 2 diabetes can be due to these reasons.
