Diabetes type II is caused by a combination of genetics and a sedate lifestyle. Not everyone who has the genes (i.e. family members with diabetes) will develop the disease, but those who do and who let their guard down by over-eating and under-exercising, thereby becoming overweight, usually will.

That said, the only way to find out is to have your blood sugars tested - your doctor can refer you to a lab for that. There are do-it-yourself testing machines available, but they are meant for ongoing maintenance programs, not so much for the initial diagnosis.

Not necessarily. Best thing is go to your doctor and have blood tests. Whatever the result it will always be a good thing to lose weight, eat low carb and take exercise.
