In brief: No way

Hepatitis c does not predispose you to diabetes.
The opposite isn't true either. These diseases are independent of each other. They have no relation whatsoever to each other.

In brief: Not necessarily

They are two different disease processes.
Hepatitis c is a viral infection. Diabetes is a metabolism disorder. Although there are many patients that have both of these conditions, they are not always linked.
