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!!

Simple answer, no.

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.

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.
