Diet & Exercise delay onset of type 2 diabetes 1


US experts suggest that diet and exercise may keep type 2 diabetes at bay for at least 3 years.

The “Diabetes Prevention Program” study, carried out on 3234 overweight, glucose-tolerance impaired 25-85 year olds, showed that lifestyle intervention reduced the risk of developing diabetes.  The participants also lost 5-7% bodyweight while following the program that included a low-fat diet and exercise.
