- this one is doesn't run in my family so i can't get it. - not really the case. it's a number of factors contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. family history's one of them. it's also things like how active are you? are you gaining weight? are you carrying extra weight? are you a member of a high risk ethnic group? women who had gestational diabetes. it's a variety of things. - sugar is the cause of diabetes. - it's not the cause. there are certainly various contributors to diabetes. in type 1 diabetes as i said earlier, it's an autoimmune disease. sugar's not involved. in type 2 diabetes, it really is that combination of your genetics and your lifestyle and that lifestyle can certainly be eating too many calories, eating foods that aren't very healthy. so it's not the cause. - and finally, kids will outgrow diabetes. - you can't outgrow diabetes. you really do need to manage diabetes all along the way
and that's really what you need to focus on. so kids really need to be growing into caring for diabetes as they go through life, not you'll not grow out of it. - alright, ann, thank you. - thanks a lot. - and to learn more about diabetes, visit cdc.gov/diabetestv. we'll see you next time. i'm joan lunden. - [narrator] sponsored by nacdd with support from the centers for disease control and prevention. visit cdc.gov/diabetestv.
