Without making assumptions, Tears, your level of activity and fitness plays a large part. Even skinny people who never get fat can battle heart disease and high cholesterol, so keeping fit and eating a health minded diet is important no matter what shape you look like on the outside. Many type 2 diabetics and prediabetics find they go into remission if they get active and lose weight, stay active, and mind their diet.

I'd watch your diet. What are you eating on a daily basis?

Default low-glycemic raw diet - diabetes reversal

There are ways if you are dedicated to being well.

Documentary on how some folks went on a low-glycemic raw diet for 30 days and reversed their diabetes.

I'm pre-diabetic also. I've been trying to eat healthier. I have another condition that prevents me from a lot of physical activity, but when I'm feeling well I walk.

Let me tell you my story. A couple of years ago, I was morbidly obese. I grew up as an athlete and never had to watch my diet; however, since I had stopped being active, I kept the same diet and gained a ton of weight. It got to the point where I was feeling sick to my stomach every day, I was lightheaded/dizzy almost all the time, it was even hard for me to walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. I went to the doctor and I had to do the glucose tests, etc to find out exactly what was going on. I already knew in my head that I was on the verge of diabetes though. My blood pressure was sky high as well. Not good for someone as young as me. A couple of years ago, my wife and I had decided to start working out. I knew I had to do something. Anyway, two years later, I've lost over 90 pounds and feel healthy and fit. I don't feel like I did before, my blood pressure is normal, etc.

A proper diet is the key as well. I can say that changing your diet is the hardest thing to do, but if you can grasp that along with working out, you'll be well on your way to reversing it.

What I'm getting at is, you can take control of this and make it better. If someone as lazy as I was can do it, you can do it as well. No, you don't have to go out and walk 10 miles or anything like that. Small steps make a big difference. Just go out, walk a block, or whatever you can do, do this on a daily basis and after a couple of weeks, increase your distance to two blocks, etc. Once you are active and can see what you can accomplish, you will start to feel better health-wise and about yourself as well.
