In brief: Maybe

Excessive sugar increases your risk.
But that's not the only thing. It's also your lifestyle (sedentary), stress, body weight, high blood pressure, overall diet (healthy or fatty, processed foods; lots of red meat, dairy, lack of whole grains).

In brief: Overweight

Even if u dont get diabetes, so many extra calories will cause weight gain which leads to many other health problems you may suffer with later on.
