How can I avoid developing diabetes?

Background:

Both my parents were obese at the time of developing diabetes. However, now (in their 60s) they are quite slim but still have insulin resistance. I exercise daily and consider myself “in shape.” I’m 155 lbs. and am 5″9. I don’t eat processed foods and sugary products.
