  • You can catch diabetes from another person who has it. False – It is a condition however that a person can acquire when they have a close family history of others in their family that have diabetes, but it is not contagious like other infections can be.
  • Consuming large amounts of sugar can eventually cause diabetes. False – The sugar itself that an individual consumes is not the problem that causes diabetes. Being overweight however is one of the leading factors that contribute to a large number of individuals acquiring this well known condition.
  • Insulin can cause a hardening of the arteries that is known as atherosclerosis. False – There were some doctors that feared insulin could cause aggravation in the arteries becoming hard and problems with high blood pressure because there has been evidence that shows this hormone can cause some of the early signals of atherosclerosis.
