M
any things affect your risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Some of these things, like your weight and how much you exercise, you can
change. Other things, like your age or your family history, you can't change. But
being aware of them can help you take smart steps to lower your risk. People of
different racial and ethnic groups are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes,
heart disease, and stroke. African Americans, Mexican Americans, American
Indians, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans have a higher
risk for these deadly diseases. This is partly because these populations are more
likely to be overweight, have high blood pressure and have type 2 diabetes.
