Easy.
Kaiser Permanente recommends a whole food plant based diet, which can be the cheapest diet.

http://www.thepermanentejournal.org/issues/2013/spring/5117-nutrition.html

"Plant-based diets may offer an advantage over those that are not plant based with respect to prevention and management of diabetes. The Adventist Health Studies found that vegetarians have approximately half the risk of developing diabetes as nonvegetarians.19 In 2008, Vang et al20 reported that nonvegetarians were 74% more likely to develop diabetes over a 17-year period than vegetarians. In 2009, a study involving more than 60,000 men and women found that the prevalence of diabetes in individuals on a vegan diet was 2.9%, compared with 7.6% in the nonvegetarians.17 A low-fat, plant-based diet with no or little meat may help prevent and treat diabetes, possibly by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin resistance.

Barnard et al21 reported in 2006 the results of a randomized clinical trial comparing a low-fat vegan diet with a diet based on the American Diabetes Association guidelines. People on the low-fat vegan diet reduced their HbA1C levels by 1.23 points, compared with 0.38 points for the people on the American Diabetes Association diet. In addition, 43% of people on the low-fat vegan diet were able to reduce their medication, compared with 26% of those on the American Diabetes Association diet.18"

Besides diet, it appears that Vitamin D may help protect against diabetes.

Also, too much iron in the body is thought to be able to induce diabetes.

So you might want to consider taking Vitamin D if you don't have sufficient exposure to the mid-day sun and avoid cooking with cast iron. Also, don't smoke.

Your doctor can tell you if you're deficient. No need to guess. It's a checkbox on you regular blood test. Another issue with low Vit D can be a bit of fatigue or even depression.

And, you can live in the tropics, very sunny, drink fortified milk, and still be deficient. Just find out. And, you can take the supplement as little as twice a week. It's not a huge commitment.
