Women with prediabetes experienced greater mean weight loss with intensive lifestyle program

Research compares efficacy of metformin, lifestyle intervention in diabetes

A recent study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that women with prediabetes experienced greater mean weight loss 12 months after participating in an intensive lifestyle intervention program, compared with those in the metformin or standard care groups.

Researchers evaluated 92 Spanish-speaking Hispanic women from Philadelphia and found those in the lifestyle intervention group also had a greater mean reduction in weight circumference than the other groups.
