Research suggests that risk for type 2 diabetes in some people may have begun very early in life, as a result of differences in how nutrients were reaching the developing baby. Differences in nutrition, either too few or too many calories, differences in the types of foods eaten, or differences in how the placenta and umbilical cord functions to deliver nutrition to the baby, can all increase babies' risk for developing type 2 diabetes much later in life.
