A study in Diabetes Care showed that patients with advanced-stage type 2 diabetes had a greater reduction in A1C 12 weeks after receiving telemedical coaching along with weighing scales, step counters and routine care, compared with those who didn't receive telemedical coaching. German researchers used a cohort of 202 patients and found similar results for secondary outcomes including body mass index, eating behavior, antidiabetes medication, quality of life, weight, systolic blood pressure and 10-year cardiovascular risk.
