It’s true that diabetes is a disease where there’s too much glucose — a type of sugar — in your blood. But just because you have high blood sugar doesn’t mean eating a lot of sugar is what got you there, says Ian Caterson, Boden Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Sydney.

In fact, the notion there’s a direct link between eating sugar and developing diabetes is a myth, Caterson says.
