In brief: Diet and exercise

I'm so glad you are on top of this.
Many studies have shown that oftentimes diabetes can be avoided by a vigorous regimen of diet, exercise, and wt. Loss (if appropriate.) a "diabetic tendency" is actually caused by Insulin resistance. There are medications that can also help such as metformin, but diet and exercise are the first priorities.
