Diet and Exercise Dramatically Delay Type 2 Diabetes:National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases:"At least 10 million Americans at high risk for type 2 diabetes can sharply lower their chances of getting the disease with diet and exercise, according to the findings of a major clinical trial announced by HHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson today at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). "In view of the rapidly rising rates of obesity and diabetes in America, this good news couldn’t come at a better time," said Secretary Thompson. "So many of our health problems can be avoided through diet, exercise and making sure we take care of ourselves. By promoting healthy lifestyles, we can improve the quality of life for all Americans, and reduce health care costs dramatically." The same study found that treatment with the oral diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage®) also reduces diabetes risk, though less dramatically, in people at high risk for type 2 diabetes."

Lifestyle Modifications Can Prevent Onset of Type 2 Diabetes:American Family Physician:"(60th Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association) The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (formerly called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) can be reduced by as much 58 percent through individualized intervention programs that encourage lifestyle modifications such as dietary changes and regular moderate exercise among patients at high risk for the disease. This is according to results of the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study involving 523 high-risk patients who had impaired glucose tolerance, a state between "normal" and "diabetes," in which the body is no longer using and/or secreting insulin properly. The average age of the patients was 55 years and the average body mass index was 31. Patients were enrolled between 1993 and 1998, with 265 patients randomized to the intervention group and 257 patients randomized to the control group. The intervention group received individual counseling on nutrition and exercise, including hour-long individual sessions with a dietitian seven times during the first year and every three months thereafter, and an exercise assessment and program plan."

What is the Diabetes Prevention Program?:National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion:"The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a 27-center randomized clinical trial that studied more than 3,200 adults who were 25 years or older and who were at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Participants in the DPP included 55 percent who were Caucasian and 45 percent who were minorities -- 20 percent African American, 16 percent Hispanic, 5 percent American Indian, 4 percent Asian American. The DPP evaluated the effectiveness of the following ways to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes: intensive lifestyle modification (healthy diet, moderate physical activity of 30 minutes a day 5 days a week) standard care plus the drug metformin standard care plus placebo (a pill that has no effect)."

Fat-Blocking Drug Xenical (Orlistat) May Prevent Some Type 2 Diabetes:docguide:"In the first demonstration of the prevention of diabetes through modest long-term weight loss, a study led by a researcher at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center has concluded that the fat- blocking drug Xenical (orlistat) can help to reverse high blood sugar and even prevent type 2 diabetes in obese individuals. The report by a team headed by Steven B. Heymsfield, MD, Deputy Director of the New York Obesity Research Center at St. Luke's-Roosevelt, appears in today's issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine. "People with obesity are at an increased risk for diabetes and the serious health risks that accompany diabetes," said Dr. Heymsfield. "We found that weight loss with Xenical may be an important addition to dietary and lifestyle interventions in reducing the risk of diabetes."

How to prevent diabetes:mindconnection:"Did you know that the peanuts offered on airlines are LESS fattening than the fat-free pretzels? It's true. Stay away from fat-free foods--they make your insulin levels do a yo-yo, and that makes you put on fat. Yuck. Worse, it sets the stage for adult-onset diabetes. Do NOT eat white flour, bleached flour, enriched flour, or any other kind of wheat flour that is not whole wheat. The glycemic effects of such flours will work against you. Eat whole grain flours, and try to get a variety. Amaranth and soy are two good flours. Eat oat groats instead of oatmeal. In short, get your grains in the least-processed form you can. This holds true for everyone, regardless of genetics (unless you have a malabsorption problem). This one "trick" will help you keep your insulin level on an even keel, and that is paramount to diabetes prevention and management."

The same study found that treatment with the oral diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage®) also reduces diabetes risk, though less dramatically, in people at high risk for type 2 diabetes. Participants randomly assigned to intensive lifestyle intervention reduced their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. On average, this group maintained their physical activity at 30 minutes per day, usually with walking or other moderate intensity exercise, and lost 5-7 percent of their body weight. Participants randomized to treatment with metformin reduced their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by 31 percent."

DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAMs:depts.washington.edu:"Diabetes Prevention Program Locations in the U.S. Welcome to the University of Washington Diabetes Prevention Program. We hope you will use this site to learn more about diabetes and to determine whether you are at risk. If you are at risk, we invite you to participate in a research study which will determine whether diabetes can be prevented"
http://depts.washington.edu/uwdpp/places.html

What is the Diabetes Prevention Trial--Type 1?:National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases:"The Diabetes Prevention Trial--Type 1 (DPT-1) is a nationwide study to see if we can prevent or delay type 1 diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes. Nine medical centers and more than 350 clinics in the United States and Canada are taking part in the study. Diabetes has a genetic link; close relatives of people with the disease have an increased chance of developing it. These are the individuals being recruited for the DPT-1. All family members, including children, are eligible for a free test to determine their risk of getting diabetes."
http://www.niddk.nih.gov/patient/dpt_1/dpt_1.htm

Diabetes Prevention Trial, information and resources:childrenwithdiabetes:"Wouldn't it be great if you could prevent insulin-dependent diabetes? Well, researchers throughout the United States are conducting a study called the Diabetes Prevention Trial-Type 1 (or DPT-1 for short) to determine if daily injections of small amounts of insulin will prevent the onset of diabetes in those who are most at risk. Research conducted at several centers throughout the United States in the 1980s and 1990s has shown that daily doses of insulin can prevent diabetes in animals and, in a small study, humans. This aim of the DPT-1 is to conduct a much larger test on humans. And the best part is that the trial is free, except for transportation costs (if any)."
