No there are lots of ways to prevent it.

Does this mean that even if you try to prevent yourself from getting it (e.g. diet, exercise, staying the right weight etc) that you'd still get it no matter what?
Sorry, the way the other post was worded it sounded a bit like their family had a genetic history of type 1 but I may have misinterpreted that.
If your family history were to put you in the high risk category:
If your family have all had type 1 there isn't much you can do to prevent it as type 1 can be triggered by pretty random stuff.
However, if your family were getting type 2 then there are many ways to prevent/postpone it.
