Diabetes is a condition where there is increased blood sugar levels due to following reasons, it is lack of sufficient insulin secretion, inability of the insulin secreted to act. chocolate causes increase in blood glucose levlels and it has no effect in causing insulin deficiency or failure of insulin to act. so chocolate does not lead to diabetes but it leads to incresed levels of blood glugose in the people already suffering from diabetes

Chocolates or any sweet will never lead to diabetes.As many know,diabetes is very much hereditary.It can also occur due to severe stress induced occupations or habits.Lack of exercise and sleep is also believed to be a main factor.But if diabetes runs in your family,then it is better to control sweets etc,with good habits and lot of exercise.Enjoy life,eat sweets but never forget to work out..........that should be your mantra.Take care

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
