Effects of lifestyle advice in persons with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes
MetadataShow full item record
Lifestyle advice is routinely given to people with diabetes in primary care; however, the extent to which this advice improves body composition and glycaemic control is difficult to measure. The authors of this study investigated the impact of routine lifestyle advice on body composition and HbA1c level in newly diagnosed treatment-naïve people with type 2 diabetes. Participants underwent a thorough assessment including anthropometric measurements, metabolic parameters and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan, and given lifestyle advice at baseline and 8 weeks. Assessment took place again at 24 weeks. The authors of this article report their primary care research.
