In brief: Potentially
Drinking a lot of high fructose corn syrup drinks may predispose you to diabetes if you have an underlying tendency; hfcs is just not good for the body at all;.

In brief: Sorta
Fully charged sweetened soda can exacerbate sugar or glucose intolerance.
This includes weight gain which can lead to diabetes in someone predisposed. Also, the carbonation and acid can aggravate/exacerbate gerd or gastritis. In general, would recommend a reduction in soda- minimize consumption.
