Numbers are normal: To prevent diabetes exercise regularly + maintain healthy weight. Screening recommendations vary by group, but general consensus is to screen adults with significant risk factors for disease - hypertension / hyperlipidemia - and those with obesity and another risk factor. Those without risk factors should undergo screening every three years or less beginning at age 45.
