Can a parasite cause diabetes?
15 years back I stayed at a family friend’s house for about 3 months, This person was an insulin dependent diabetic.

I no longer have a way of getting in contact with this woman so it is not possible for me to ask her any questions.

The home owner had a 2 dogs that stayed inside and used the garage to relive themselves (from time to time they would relive themselves in the house) and she had some weird ideas about handling meat...she would leave it on the counter for 24 hours to defrost.

About 3 to 4 months after moving out I became an insulin dependent diabetic.

When this happen I was 24, I walked or road a bicycle everywhere (I was in school and didn’t have a car), and I was 5 to 10 pounds over weight, I am the only diabetic in my family.

Being that the home owner was an insulin dependent diabetic (and may have gotten diabetes from her environment), had indoor dogs that relived themselves in the garage and in the house, the home owner handled meat in a not so safe way, and I became an insulin dependent diabetic at the age of 24 (only 3 to 4 months after moving out) could the cause of my diabetes be related to a parasitic infection picked up during my stay at this house?
Additional Details
I did not state that “the home owner has diabetes” because I think “I can catch diabetes" so please stop telling me the obvious.

My point was to say that we could have been exposed to the same environmental factors.

Please stop telling me “I can’t catch diabetes” thanks

You cannot "catch" diabetes because it is not a contagious disease. The only way that it can pass on to another person is when it is genetically linked. You say you are the only one in your family who is diagnosed with diabetes, have you checked back to your maternal and paternal grandparents. If you discount the genetic link, then it is possible you developed diabetes through some other factors. Check with your family doctor on this.

Wish you could be health.

It is not possible to "catch" diabetes from another person, except by inheritance.

it is NOT possible to "eat the wrong foods" and thus acquire diabetes. Eating sugar does NOT cause diabetes.

Diabetes does not normally have environmental causes, except those common to other diseases like cancer. But in this case, cancer is the primary result, not diabetes. Diabetes from environmental causes is VERY rare, and it is VERY unlikely that either you or the other person got diabetes from the environment.

Insulin dependent diabetes (Type 1 Diabetes) is a COMPLETE FAILURE of the pancreas, although this tendency can be inherited, it can happen to anyone, and has no known outside cause. It canNOT be prevented -- if you are going to get Type 1 Diabetes, then you ARE going to get it, no matter what you do. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT, nor the fault of anyone you have ever known.

Type 2 Diabetes is a partial failure of the pancreas, and is caused by being overweight. you can PREVENT Type 2 Diabetes by eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, and controlling your weight.
