Drinking fruit juice is a risk of Diabetes!!!

I used to drink orange juices more than 16 fluid oz. each day. Knowing this could be a risk factor I reduce drinking orange juices because it is high in glycemic meaning high in sugar that may cause diabetes. Type 1 diabetes usually occurs in children or young adults due to genetics, viral, or autoimmune. What this does is when the body fails to produce insulin. The lack of insulin may have symptoms of excessive thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, and blurred vision. People with this needs a lifelong daily insulin injection or healthy diet and exercise to maintain normal blood glucose level. Type 2 diabetes is the most common in the United States due to the cause of genetics, aging, or obesity. Type two diabetes used to be called "adult onset", until kids started to get them as well. Type two diabetes is when glucose can't enter the body cell, this is due to either the pancreas having problems producing insulin or the cells are resistant to insulin. Symptoms for this diagnose includes fatigue or nausea, frequent urination, constant thirst, weight loss, blurred vision, frequent infections, and slow healing of wounds or sores. Pre-diabetes usually occurs before Type 2 diabetes and a risk of heart disease, its a condition when blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not enough evidence to say it is diabetes. To prevent having this, an excellent healthy diet will do you good and regular exercise will aid those glucose entering the cells. Weight loss also decrease insulin resistant & help blood glucose level. There's another diabetes that can occur in pregnant women and its called gestational diabetes. There are no evidence on what causes this, but this condition means that they have hyperglycemia(high blood sugar) during pregnancy. After the pregnancy, there is a 100% chance on developing type two diabetes when they are overweight and don't lose weight. Following the Diabetic diet can work to decrease this risk by eating food in low saturated fat and high fiber, exercise to maintain normal weight and calorie control, and ask for a dietition's assistant.
After reading and learning all of these, I know just what to do to change my lifestyle but I don't know what to trust to purchase what the market is selling because all the fruits and vegetables are genetically modified...
