Genetics plays an important role in determining who can develop diabetes. If diabetes runs in your family, there is a greater chance that you too will suffer from the disease. Early monitoring, a good diet, proper nutrition, a healthy weight, healthy lifestyle, and regular use of testing tools will help in the prevention and/or early detection of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is more likely to be inherited, while type 2 diabetes may be avoided by healthy choices. To have type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes, you must carry the gene to be at risk.
