The only way to prevent / delay the onset of diabetes is to maintain a healthy lifestyle . Considering your age , you should keep yourself very active. Walking and moderate physical exercise will help . Cut down on carbohydrate rich foods like rice , increase intake of citrus fruits and protein rich foods . Check you blood sugar regularly atleast one every three months . Best Of luck !
