In brief: Healthy lifestyle

You have strong family history of diabetes.
Best that you can do to prevent development of diabetes is to keep your weight normal through healthy diet and exercise. If you are overweight, start thinking about making chances to your lifestyle. See a dietician and exercise specialist to learn the basics. Good luck.
