I will try my best to answer your query.

Ants being attracted to urine is not a legitimate test for diabetes anyway. I think you might have tested for random blood sugar test. I advice you to go for Fasting and postprandial blood sugar to conform the DM. Family history do increase the chances of DM.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.
