Guidelines: At this time there is no indication to do anything other than make sure you optimize your diabetic management. Although there is a study suggesting higher risk other studies not. You are not old and I assume you do not smoke. There is no guarantee , but at this time regular precautions are what you need to do. Do activities, good sleep, eat healthy and exercise.
