“It is well known that obesity, unbalanced diet, and physical inactivity are the major risk factors for diabetes. In people genetically predisposed to the disease, the probability to develop type 2 diabetes is high once exposed to “unhealthy” lifestyles. In understanding the potential for prevention of type 2 diabetes, it is important to understand the enormity of a preventive lifestyle intervention.
It is a well-known fact that antidiabetic drug treatment in type 2 diabetes has only a limited effect on glycemic control, which deteriorates in diabetic patients despite intensive treatment, as demonstrated in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients in the U.K. Prospective Diabetes Study.” American Diabetics Association.
“There is also strong international evidence which demonstrates how behavioural interventions, which support people to maintain a healthy weight and be more active, can significantly reduce the risk of developing the condition.” UK's National Health Service
