In brief: Genetics

Type 2 diabetes has a stronger link to family history and lineage although it too depends on environmental factors.
Studies of twins have shown that genetics play a very strong role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle also influences the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity tends to run in families, and families tend to have similar eating and exercise habits. If yo.

In brief: Not likely

Type ii diabetes is a problem essentially every adult or adolescent may get if their body mass index / weight is excessive.
Some may develop this at lower weights than others, but this disorder is unheard of before puberty & not common until middle age. More important than genetic material is the influence of family feeding patterns.The majority of parents do nor recognize their kid is overweight.
