• [myth] Diabetes is a contagious disease

No, diabetes is not a infectious disease. It does not spread from person to person. Type 1 diabetes is caused by genetics and unknown factors that trigger the onset of the disease; type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics and lifestyle factors.

Although most people are aware of this some out of ignorance may think so. Education is the key to overcome such unfounded beliefs.
