To ward off diabetes you should maintain a healthy body weight (BMI 25 or less) and eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

I understand that eating a balanced diet of whole grains, proteins, and fruits and veggies helps.

Causes: High BMI, overweight eating foods high in cans & sugar, sedentary lifestyle. Preventative/corrective measures- lose weight, refuse your waist size, exercise at least 30 minutes & if you eat food with 11 grams of carbs or more definitely exercise & more if its higher. Get a glucose meter & target your fasting glucose to be under 100 consistently. If it is high ditch the sugar-it is like crack cocaine sooo addictive probably worse.

Reduce your waist line. Exercise is the key. Newly diagnosed. I'm 35 pounds over weight. I don't run but I did the treadmill yesterday before dinner. 3.25 miles in 1hr @ varied speeds. BG 98. Exercised less than 15 minutes about 2 hrs before bedtime ( crunches & a few other simple calisthenics) waking glucose 89. Without exercise my fasting glucose was ranging 104-115.
