Just got a clean bill of health from my doctor :) but he said I need to take precautions to avoid getting non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. What can I do?

In brief: Healthy lifestyle
Obesity is the main cause for non-insulin dependent diabetes.
To avoid it, make sure you maintain a healthy lifestyle: keep weight normal, if overweight or obese, try to lose weight, be active, increase exercise, use alcohol in moderation....
