  1. Yes.

    Type 2 diabetes is a genetic disease.

    The risk is highest when multiple family members have diabetes, and if the children also are overweight, sedentary and have the other risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

    Your child has a 10-15% chance of developing type 2 diabetes when you have type 2 diabetes.

    And if one identical twin has type 2 diabetes, there is a 75% likelihood of the other twin developing type 2 diabetes also.
