No: No one has ever developed diabetes because they age sugar -- it's family history, age and weight that are important.

Coffee: Coffee has been recently been shown to reduce your chances of diabetes. However, certain types of sugar (high fructose corn syrup) have been implicated to cause dm2. The theory is that it absorbs so quickly, that it causes a high blood sugar spike. The compensatory Insulin spike, over time, causes a down regulation of receptors, leading to dm 2. So pay attention to the type of sugar you consume.
