I am trying to prevent diabetes, any tips ?

I am 23 years old (female). I work out 6 times a week ( strength training 3 days a week and jog 3-4 days a week). I am trying to avoid processed foods and eat whole wheat items when consuming carbs. Both my cousin and my grandmother ( her siblings) have or are pre-diabetic. My mom does not have it but my father has high- blood pressure . Heart problems run on both sides of the family. What else can I do to avoiding getting it?

Sorrry...if there is a family history of diabetes, you cannot prevent it from affecting you..Howeevr what you are already doing will help you delay either the onset, or progression of the disease. All the very best..Get a check done early to see if you too have got it already..
