Overweight and obese type 2 diabetes patients who underwent intensive lifestyle intervention attained greater weight loss and better glycated hemoglobin, fitness levels and overall cardiovascular risk factors at one year compared with the control group, researchers reported at the American Diabetes Association annual meeting. However, the intervention did not meet the study's primary end point of reducing the rates of cardiovascular events such as nonfatal myocardial infarction and nonfatal stroke. The results appear in the New England Journal of Medicine.
