Q.

No family history

We don' t have diabetes (type 1) in our family - is there a way of preventing us from getting type 2, something we can do to give our kids a good health foundation to prevent this when they get older? Is stress a factor?

A healthy lifestyle - healthy diet and exercising, no smoking will definitely benefit your children. Stress may be a precipitant, but other underlying factors may also play a role.
