Hello,
What do you mean by uninstall? If you mean software, there’s an Uninstall option in dietpi-software. If you want to remove DietPi itself from a Debian system that you used the prep script on, you can’t, as DietPi makes (basically) irreversible changes to your system.

It might be possible by reverting all steps done by PREP script. But it would be quite some manual effort to remove DietPi settings/tools and replace them with standard. I doubt it was done before. Would be easier to start with a new clean installation from the OS you like to run.

Honestly I don't understand where you like to go and what you are trying to achieve. If you are going to disable DietPi componets, your system will not start. Maybe you can give some more information on your goal.
