In brief: Exercise & Nutrition

Eat a proper diet and exercise.
Maintain weight for your height and for you age predicted bmi. If this is done, outside rare cirucumstances, one should not get diabetes. Excess fat blocks the utilization of utilization of Insulin creating elevation of blood sugars and thus the diabetic state. One cannot over emphasize that diet, exercise, rest, fluids, sleep and mental health are needed always.
