There is no way (currently known) to prevent diabetes type 1.

To prevent diabetes type 2, you need to maintain a healthy diet and you need to exercise. Avoid too many refined (processed) carbohydrates and this includes grains, sugar and products containing sugar. Refined/processed carbohydrate is a major cause of weight gain, obesity, and many diet related diseases. For a list of refined (processed) carbohydrates, see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
