When the cell walls are taken over by "DuPONT" the onset of many degenerative disease starts and diabetes is just one of them. Curse the American Junk food industry and the Low Fat Crap that they preached all this while but loaded human body with 5 times fructose that it could tolerate .... through the Crap called JUNK FOOD, Packaged food.

Type I Diabetes makes the individual very thin because there is complete deficiency of Insulin and the body can't get fuel for the body. Type II Diabetes arises because of obesity. The fat cells makes the body non-responsive to Insulin and the fuel producing mechanism thus causing a relative Insulin resistance by the body. Overweight and obese people are at increased risk of having Type II Diabetes which is also genetic.
