Diabetes is not contagious. People cannot “catch” it from each other. However, certain factors can increase the risk of developing diabetes.

 

Type 1 diabetes occurs equally among males and females but is more common in whites than in nonwhites.

  • people of any age
  • people with a family history of diabetes
  • others at high risk for type 2 diabetes: older people, overweight and sedentary people, African Americans, Alaska Natives, American Indians, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, some Pacific Islander Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos
