The Family has a major role in development of Diabetes and otherwise. The Family genetics can predispose an individual to the condition as it is considered a familial disease. However, risk for the disease does not translate to the development of the disease.
Family dietary practices, which describes the type of food the family eats, and timing of eating. Families that generally crave for fast foods and low fibre diets increase the risk of development of Diabetes especially if there is genetic risk already. Timing of eating is also important as poor eating habits such as sleeping almost immediately after dinner may increase risk of weight gain.
Family’s attitude to exercise; a family that encourage more sedentary lifestyle than exercising, may expose it’s members to early development of diabetes through increased weight gain.
Family’s health seeking behaviour; poor health seeking behaviour can lead to worsening of diseases and late diagnosis. Early detection of impaired fasting blood glucose may prevent development of diabetes itself.
