Get moving!: Didn't get the whole question. You are at a great age to stop future problems. Being over weight and having a family history of diabetes definitely puts you at risk. Start getting into an exercise program and cut back on fried and fatty food. That should help get things back to normal.
Dr. Samuel Sadow
Bariatrics 48 years experience
Start following a Mediterranean Diet, cut out sweets and snacks, have your doctor to put you into a good weight loss program to help you to lose all your fat and keep it off. Do at least 300 minutes per week of physical activity including muscle strengthening. Drink 10 glasses of water per day and get 8 hours of sleep. Eat a good protein breakfast and eat some protein with each meal. Don't skip meals.

Lifestyle change : Even for patients on medication for diabetes or metabolic syndrome, a healthy diet accompanied by weight loss, exercise, and quality sleep (or treated obstructive sleep apnea), is the key to getting back on track. For those already on medication, doctors may even be able to decrease doses once the effects of lifestyle change start happening. A healthy lifestyle involves a lifelong commitment.
