Dehydration: When sugar levels get so high it leads to dehydration and increase osmolarity of the blood. That means the blood thickens.

In a new case...: In a brand new case of diabetes, especially type 1, people experience excessive thirst, excessive hunger, and excessive urination. Their blood sugar is high, and they "spill" this sugar into the urine. The weight loss can be attributed to this calorie loss, but also to volume depletion, i.e., dehydration. Most type 2 diabetics present more gradually, and will typically be overweight or obese. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Seems to be a factor: The risk of type 2 diabetes is greater in cases of obesity and also with increased sugar consumption (glucose, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, etc).

Increased calorie consumption appears to be a risk. ...Read more
