Can I get diabetes if I get a blood transplant from a diabetic?

    It would be a transfusion, not a transplant which relates to organs.    I seriously doubt a diabetic on medication would be accepted as a blood donor ( never tried it, so check) so in short, no you can't - or shouldn't!!

      In the UK it is highly unlikely that a diabetic will be allowed to donate blood

    How quickly you metabolize sugars is dependent on your own digestive system's health. Blood is just a transport mechanism for sugar, how you deal with it is your digestive system's job.

    No, sir.  Diabetes is NOT transferable.

    They don't accept blood donations from diabetics, because we have too much medication in our systems.

      Again, in the UK diabetics can't donate blood under most circumstances https://www.diabetes.co.uk/can-people-with-diabetes-give-blood.html

    No, it is not carried in the blood.

    Nope. Diabetes is a disease of the pancreas, it can't be transmitted.

    I don't think so, it originates in your pancreas (I think) and just getting blood is not going to interfere with it's function.
