Hi romance,

Good for you for trying to prevent. But sometimes there is no prevention. You just get it. But possibly by eating your type of diet it delays the onset. He'res hoping it works! Another thing to look into are the fats you eat, the levels of B12, vitD, in your body, magnesium you consume. There are many possible causes of diabetes. Magnesium deficiency for example has been pointed out as a possible cause. Eating natural fats like animal fats and avoiding seed oils/vegetable oil can also help in your quest for health.
If you want to catch it early, then look at your fasting BG every year and make sure its not creeping up into the 90's. Another thing you can do is check your fasting insulin levels every year. If they are greater than 5, then be wary. Also read Atkins books on diabetes. He has a chapter and nice summary table on the progression of carb intolerance and what to look for. Initial signs of carb intolerance are listed, as well as later signs that would show up in your insulin levels, all the way on up to high post meal numbers, then high fasting numbers.
This owuld not have helped me for example as my fasting insulin was low, therefore no insulin resistnce. But it can help many, and could be an early sign for you.

Good luck on your searching and your quest for health.

If you want to read more about why LC is healthy, try something like Mark Sisson's the primal Blueprint. He lays out why he thinks its healthy in nice and easy to understand terms. It was a fun read.
For LCHF, you can try "the art and science of carbohydrate living"
