In brief: Type 2 risk factors

Hi. Any phenotype (look it up!) is a result of your genes & your environmental factors.
Genetics plays a role, and you can't change your genes. There is no way to lower risk of type 1, other than some experimental means. Risk of type 2 can be reduced by living a healthy lifestyle with healthy diet, lifelong regular exercise, and maintenance of ideal body weight. Are you overweight, inactive, etc?
