WHAT CAN YOU DO TO PREVENT TYPE 2 DIABETESIn order to prevent diabetes is to live a healthy lifestyle. It is very important to have fruits vegetables and grains, such as avocados,oranges, colliflower, whole wheat bread etc.Those foods that you need to consume contain little to zero amount of glucose that helps your pancreas break down the right amount of sugar. Another very important elemant is exercise.You should aim to do atleast 30 minutes of phisical activity a day and start to lose about 7% of your body weight . What this does is it gets rid of extra glucose or fat that your body does not need. If someone is suffering from diabetes they should still work hard to achieve these things.
