Type 2 diabetes runs in my family — there is no way for me to avoid it.

Correct


Just because type 2 diabetes runs in your family doesn’t mean you will definitely develop it. Having a family history of type 2 diabetes may increase your risk, but adopting healthy habits, such as maintaining a healthy weight and staying physically active, may reduce your risk.

I'm not overweight or obese, so I'm not at-risk of type 2 diabetes.

Correct

  • Having a family history of type 2 diabetes
  • Being a member of certain ethnic groups (for example, African American or Hispanic)

People with type 2 diabetes need to watch what they eat.

The correct answer is “True”
