Sometimes you can't.
If someone in your immediate family has diabetes, you are at high risk to develop it. You can help to prevent it by maintaining a healthy wieght (bmi < 25), exercising 30 minutes a day and eating a healthy diet (45 grams of carbohydrates max per meal).

In brief: Be healthy
Eat like you already have diabetes (low saturated fat, low sugar, high fiber diet), exercise daily, don't smoke, control lipids and blood pressure, and keep a healthy weight.
See your doctor for help. If he/she won't help, get a new doctor.
