Common Misconceptions

A pretty common myth is that diabetes occurs when someone eats too much sugar. Eating too much sugar isn’t good for anybody because sugar is one of those things with “empty calories.” Eating sugar can indirectly cause diabetes because the biggest cause of type 2 diabetes is being overweight. If someone’s eating too much sugar, they can be more likely to be overweight but sugar itself is not really the cause of type 2 diabetes.
