Tell me if you had diabites(lets say you have diabetes), what u can do 2 prevent it from happening 2 u.?
just tell me what you would do if you had diabetes as a kid
Additional Details
mkae it pretty detailed and give lots of info

type 1 diabetes is unavoidable...usually genetic, not always though. type 2 diabetes is caused by being overweight....and can also be caused by genetics. but if you are trying to prevent type 2, diet and exercise is your best bet. and losing weight. i have had type 1 for 15 years (I am 22 years old) so i would jump over mountains to have been able to avoid it...but it wasn't possible for me : ) so if you are thinking you have a chance to get type 2, (if you have it in your family, or are overweight) watch your diet (keep the carbs to a minimum) and start an exercise routine. stopping it before it starts would be blessing. but if you do get it, it will not be the end of the world. so good luck to you!

The diabetes you get as a kid is generally in the family history. You can't do anything to stop you from developing it if its in the family, but to manage/control it you have to eat healthy, exercise, don't smoke, etc. All the usual stuff they say to keep you healthy.
The diabetes you get as an adult is generally due to poor lifestlye habits. Again, eat right, exercise etc etc.


You just can prevent a disease BEFORE you have it. BUT,you can prevent various
serious complications of this disease.The
major problem about diabetes is that most
of affected people feels good and so thinks
its OK and don't folllow the appropiate diet and often miss medication.Meanwhile,high
blood sugar is making demages in several
organs,slowly.Take care.Sometimes it´s hard to do,but,believe me ,it is not impossible.Reading more about the disease
learning about healthly life,makes you more
comfortable to care yourself.

There are 2 types of diabetes. Type 1 also called children's onset diabetes if unstoppable. I have it and there is nothing I could have done different. No matter how healthy I was, I was going to get it at some point. Type 2 however can be helped, although it's passed down genetically quite easily. The best thing to do is eat healthy nothing to fatty, and exercise.

Type 1 is where your body starts attaking your insulin producing cells. Without insulin no sugar gets into your cells, and you get a high blood sugar. When you have no energy in your cells from the sugar, your body starts digesting fat which releases a poison called ketones. These are aweful, I was in the hospital for a week because of this.

Type 2 is when your cells are so full of carbs and sugar all ready they refuse to accept more. So while the insulin is telling your cells to take in the sugar they refuse. What happens then is that your body needs a lot more insulin before your cells will accept more sugar.

Devil, Angel of my heart.
if you already HAVE diabetes, then you can't prevent it from happening. it's already HAPPENED.

I became diabetic after being 30 lbs overweight for several years. I lost from 205 down to 175 and my problem magically went away, ten years ago, and no recurrence by keeping my weight down. Hope this solves your problem.

Just as there are laws in the physical, (the world we see), that say a one hundred thousand ton aircraft carrier can float or a one hundred ton jet can fly, but only with the proper knowledge, there are also laws in the spiritual, (the world we don't see), that a person can use to eliminate Aids, MS, malaria, heart disease, cancer, blindness...etc. from their body. http://www.sheep2lion.com/ will help you obtain the knowledge about those laws and more.

i have it and sorry girl their is nothing you can do to prevent it

Type I diabetes (used to be called juvenile diabetes) happens when the pancreas stops making insulin completely. There are many theories as to why this happens. The only way for a Type I diabetic to manage the disease is by injections of insulin.

Type II diabetes can be a result of lifestyle - being overweight etc. HOWEVER, this is not always the case. Controlling your weight, eating healthy foods and getting exercise may not prevent Type II diabetes.

Women who are pregnant can get gestational diabetes, that is they become diabetic when they are pregnant. They usually go back to a non-diabetic state when they have had their baby. However, women with gestational diabetes are at a higher risk of developing Type II diabetes in later life.

Type II diabetes is sometimes called late onset diabetes because it usually happens to people over 40. What happens in Type II diabetes is that the pancreas either doesn't produce enough insulin OR the body cells become resistant to insulin. Or it can be a combination of both...

Body cells needs glucose to function - no glucose, cells die. The glucose molecule is too large to pass through the microscopic pores on the cell wall. Glucose needs a "key" to open the little pores. Insulin is that "key". Insulin binds with the cell wall and opens the pores so they are large enough for the glucose molecules to pass through.

Therefore if there is not enough or no insulin, some glucose molecules can't get inside the cells and float around in the bloodstream. If the cell walls become insulin resistant, no matter how much insulin is there, the cells refuse to use it.

Type I diabetes requires insulin injections. There is no cure.

Type II diabetes can be treated by diet and exercise. It can also be treated with pills - they act in two ways. They stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin and they also have an effect on the cell walls making them less resistant to insulin. People with Type II diabetes can sometimes reverse the disease by losing weight and eating a healthy diet. Some people with Type II diabetes may require insulin injections.
