Breaking News – Diet and exercise ‘better than drugs at stopping diabetes’


Dieting and exercising regularly may be more effective in controlling type 2 diabetes than medication, the research suggests. Patients who participate in weight loss programs are less likely to need medication and tend to have healthier blood sugar levels, according to a study. Glasgow researchers tracked 1,500 patients with type 2 diabetes who attended an NHS lifestyle course and compared them with those who did not. They found that people who completed the 16-week regimen did not see an increase in the diabetes pills they were supposed to take. They were also half as likely to see their condition progressing as they needed to take insulin. Patients who completed the course lost an average of 1.25 in the three years after the end, compared to only 2 lb among those who did not. .
