This is a really good thing for you to do, especially since you have diabetes in your family history. There is no sure way to guarantee that you will not develop diabetes. However, maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and not smoking will all help you lower your risk of diabetes. Also, early diabetes screening can help detect prediabetes and diabetes in early stages. The American Diabetes Association has a great website that has a lot of information that you may find helpful. I encourage you to take a look at it. good luck.
