Type 2 diabetics can greatly lower health care costs with lifestyle changes
Type 2 diabetics can greatly lower health care costs with lifestyle changes (August 25, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From North Carolina - A new report published in Diabetes Care finds that type 2 diabetics lower their health care costs by losing weight. Researchers studied over 5,000 individuals with type 2 diabetes. Participants were obese or overweight, between 45 and 76 years old, and were followed for 10 years after being randomized to either intensive lifestyle intervention or diabetes support and education. Results showed that those who underwent lifestyle intervention--improving their diet and increasing physical activity--lowered their annual health care costs by over $500.
