From Buxton, Derbyshire, United Kingdom:

I am a reception teacher and have a child in my class who has been taken into hospital with suspected diabetes and I am concerned because I have been providing him with a snack of biscuits everyday previous to finding out. Do you think that this could have caused the diabetes?


Please be reassured that his diabetes would not have been caused by your giving him a packet of biscuits each day.
