There are two major risk factors to diabetes. Family history of diabetes and your weight. You can't change the first one. You can control the second one. So keep a watch on your body weight and waist size (visceral fat). A rule of thumb is to keep the ratio of waist to hip (WTH) measure below 1.0 and preferably at 0.85–0.9 (for males). On an absolute number, keep the waist size below 36″. Do whatever it takes to keep the WTH ratio at 0.9 and waist size below 35″. If your weight is increasing, assume you are insulin resistant (because of your genes). Prefer to eat low carb than low fat. If possible, avoid all types of refined carbohydrates (maida, sooji or broken wheat, rice, wheat, potato and corn), sugar, fruits and root vegetables. Fruits and grains were the root causes of my pre diabetic condition.

The most important factor is to cut your body fat percentage. Our bodies (especially men) store excess body fat around the waist which affects the functioning of the pancreas in producing insulin. Reducing your body fat (to under 15%) plays a big role in solving the problem. So this will cure you from turning to diabetic from pre-diabetic.

The consequences of high blood sugar are really serious when sustained over a long period time. These consequences, stemming from the accumulation of excess glucose in the blood stream, clogging the fine capillaries of the eyes (causing retinopathy), the kidneys (causing nephropathy), and the extremities, leading to reduced circulation into fingers and toes, which may then necessitate amputation. In the short run, high blood glucose, over 300 mg/dL, can cause type one diabetic to feel listless and sluggish, and to need to urinate frequently.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that results in high blood glucose levels. This excess glucose issecreted in the saliva as well. The bacteria thrive on glucose for energy and high levels of glucosein saliva provide an excellent environment for it to flourish. This, in turn, increases the risk of sores and thrush. It also results in a build-up of plaques on teeth that is the root cause of oral disorders.
