What Are the Factors That Increase the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes?
Factors that increase type 2 diabetes include smoking and living an unhealthy lifestyle. However, some of these factors are uncontrollable. Here are some factors that may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. 
Weight: Studies in the UK suggest that abdominal fat can cause fat cells to release chemicals that make the body insulin resistant. Since the body becomes resistant to insulin, it ultimately leads to the development of diabetes.  
Family history: A person has a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their family has a history of it. However, by living healthier, eating healthy, and exercising, they can prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes in their body. 
Race and ethnicity: It’s unclear why some races are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than other races. 
Age: Some people after 45 are prone to developing type 2 diabetes.
