Why do people get diabetes?

Why do people get diabetes?The exact cause of diabetes is not fully understood.

Currently, it is believed that diabetes is mainly caused by the interaction of various genetic and environmental factors. Genetic factors make some people more susceptible to diabetes, but without the influence of environmental factors, disease onset is not inevitable.

The environmental risk factors for type 1 diabetes are mainly viral infections and chemical substances.

The main environmental risk factor for type 2 diabetes is obesity. Men with a waist circumference greater than 90cm and women with a waist circumference greater than 85cm are considered to have central obesity, which increases the likelihood of developing diabetes.

Other factors such as insufficient physical activity, excessive consumption of animal fats in the diet, excessive protein (meat), and inadequate consumption of rice and vegetables (decreased fiber) are also related to diabetes.
