The less active you are, the greater your risk. Physical activity helps you control your weight, uses up glucose as energy and makes your cells more sensitive to insulin. Exercising less than three times a week may increase your risk of type 2 diabetes. Family history. Your risk increases if a parent or sibling has type 2 diabetes. Race. Although it's unclear why, people of certain races — including blacks, Hispanics, American Indians and Asians — are at higher risk. Age. Your risk increases as you get older. This may be because you tend to exercise less, lose muscle mass and gain weight as you age. But type 2 diabetes is also increasing dramatically among children, adolescents and younger adults.
