Text message support may yield significant weight loss in prediabetes

February 12, 2016

In patients with prediabetes, the use of text message support may be conducive to clinically significant weight loss, according to study findings published in Diabetes Care.

Henry H. Fischer, MD, of the adult primary care department at Denver Health and Hospital Authority, and colleagues evaluated 163 English- and Spanish-speaking adult patients recruited from Sam Sandos Westside Family Health Center, part of the Denver Health integrated health care system. Patients did not have diabetes, their HbA1c ranged from 5.7% to 6.4% and their BMI was 25 kg/m2 to 50 kg/m2. They also had mobile phones and text message capability.
