15% Or More Weight Loss Disease Modifying In T2D Patients
A study showed that losing 15% or more of body weight can have a disease-modifying effect in patients with T2D. In the DiRECT trial which assessed an intensive lifestyle intervention in patients with overweight or obesity and T2D of less than 6 years'duration showed remission of T2D at 2 years in 70% of those who lost 15kg or more. This outcome is unattainable by any other glucose-lowering intervention. Authors suggest that weight loss should become a central focus of managing T2D as its can even reverse many cases and reduce complications.
