Q. I'm having trouble with the near absence of specificity in all of the literature I'm reading about adult onset and diabetes in general.  Everywhere I look I see recommendations for "lifestyle changes" and "low fat, reduced calorie" dieting.  This seems like a one-size-fits all prescription for any complaint.  It almost feels like no one speaking or writing about diabetes wants to be pinned down about the specifics.  It is a sweeping set of generalities I hear again and again.

Where do I go to find out exactly what those lifestyle changes should be and what foods, amounts, etc are best to prevent the onset of Type 2.

A. Diabetes care is specific to each individual which is probably why you are finding more general guidelines than specifics.  The best recommendations you can get are from your healthcare team because they are familiar with your specific health needs.

A few links you might look at are:

http://www.diabetes.org/nutrition-and-recipes/nutrition/overview.jsp

http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/preventionprogram/

In short, these organizations indicate maintaining a healthy body weight, regular exercise, following a healthy diet, and staying in contact with your doctor seem to be the best approach in reducing risk for diabetes or delaying onset for diabetes.
