Lifestyle intervention improves health-related quality of life in prediabetes, metabolic syndrome

July 28, 2016

Adults with prediabetes or metabolic syndrome assigned to an intensive 12-month lifestyle intervention program saw improvements in health-related quality of life, as well as improved clinical and behavioral outcomes vs. controls assigned to a waiting list, according to recent findings.

“These community-based lifestyle intervention programs have additional valuable benefits, beyond the improvement of risk factors for type 2 diabetes and heart disease,” Yvonne L. Eaglehouse, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in the department of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, said in a press release. “Our study demonstrates that these programs, delivered in diverse community settings, such as senior centers and work sites, simultaneously and significantly improved the quality of life of the participants.”
