my great-grandmother developed diabetes as adults.

I don't know how active my GGM was prior to, but I do know she was never fat and was running an in-home daycare in her 60s and 70s.

That doesn't say much - if your GGM's parents died in their 50's (or earlier) she was doing pretty good.

And taking care of kids at an older age probably helped do her in - there's studies that seniors who are full-time caregivers have poorer health than seniors who spend less time with children.

While I don't think VeeEnn is wording posts well, I think the general question for the OP is - if you know you're at high risk for a disease, are you making changes now in non-medication ways, or are you waiting for a test result to make those changes.
