Hi omolayo

Thanks for your question!

You cannot get diabetes from another person. However, you can pick up infections from this kind of accident, including HIV and Hepatitis. Please contact your doctor about getting tested and ask for information on any preventative medication you can be given. You should do this today.

Good luck,
