I ate 100 grams of sugar in one sitting. I eat healthy overall, and rarely will binge on sugar. Am I at risk for diabetes, other health problems?

In brief: We are all at risk

A single high dose of sugar won't cause diabetes.
However, diabetes is increasingly common as high carb diets,obesity and lack of exercise cause diabetes. Binging on sugar temporarily impairs immune function so you could get an acute infection shortly after binging. It is wise for all of us to limit sugar consumption, but a rare binge should not cause lasting harm. See http://tinyurl.com/ber748c
