    The answer is both, pbarobly?Ten years ago I believed there had to be a genetic disposition in order to develop type 2 diabetes, now I believe that lifestyle and/or genetics can bring the disease on. There are numerous studies that show people who have no history of diabetes in their families are developing the disease but to be fair it isn’t always possible to know if their is a family history of diabetes since many are never diagnosed and/or are not telling anyone they have it.That site that Mz Lamb gave is outdated, it hasn’t changed or been updated in 6 years that I know of.
