Making massive lifestyle changes soon after a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes results in significantly better outcomes than gradual shifts, reports a research paper published in this week’s “Lancet.” In the research paper, a group of 590 newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics were followed soon after discovering their disease.
The volunteers were randomized to undergo intense counseling to change their lifestyle or to receive standard care. Those that were asked to make large lifestyle changes had significantly better blood sugar control and fewer complications at the end of the 6-month follow-up period. Importantly, body weight and blood pressure also reduced in the intense-change group.
