How do you prevent future diabetes ?

Type 2 diabetes is quite common in my family and 3 out of 4 of my grandparents had it. How well does eating less sugar when you are young (about 30) prevent you from getting diabetic later ? Are there any other tips on how to prevent it?

Eating less sugar or eating less carboghydrate foods can only delay your risk of getting diabetes. Since it runs in your family yu will get it. The point is to go in for early diagnosis and early and proper treatment combined with diet control to prevent complications and disease progressions.

I experience a crawling, stinging sensation in my legs and feet, especially at night. I use lotion frequently to provide relief and prevent the skin of my feet from splitting and peeling. I ve lost the majority of sensation in both of my pinkie toes. When I had a primary care doctor, she told me that a blood test worried her, that I may have diabetes, but that she wanted to run additional tests, but I lost my coverage. But the pain and numbness are getting worse. Do I have to worry about diabetes? And what can I do to rule it out?

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
