Not by itself!: If you are not diabetic already, then developing diabetes is usually the result of PROLONGED sugar excess, which your body eventually has difficulty controlling. One heavily-sugared drink by itself will not cause diabetes. However, lots of sugar from different sources over time can certainly predispose you to diabetes. If you are quite concerned, bloodwork for HemoglobinA1C would be a good start!
