In brief: Weight control
You cannot change your genetics but we can all watch our weight.
Type ii diabetes is commonly associated with obesity because of Insulin resistance. Therefore a healthy diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean meat and proteins is key to lowering your risk for diabetes. This can also be combined with a healthy dose of routine exercise.
