In brief: DM2

If there is family history of type 2 diabetes, it may be difficult to figure out whether your diabetes is due to lifestyle factors or genetic susceptibility.
Most likely it is due to both. However studies show that it is possible to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by exercising and losing weight. Check http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/genetics-of-diabetes.html
