Lifestyle modification reduces medication cost in type 2 diabetes

April 18, 2017

In adults with type 2 diabetes, a lifestyle modification program combining high exercise volume, restrictive diet and education was effective in reducing the cost and number of pills taken per day, according to study findings published in BMJ Open.

Frédéric Dutheil, MD, PhD, of the faculty of health, School of Exercise Science, Australian Catholic University, and colleagues evaluated 29 adults (13 men; mean age, 59.3 years; mean BMI, 34.5 kg/m2) with type 2 diabetes who participated in a 3-week residential program that combined high exercise volume (15-20 hours per week), restrictive diet (-500 kcal per day) and education to determine the effect of the program on the cost of routine medications. Follow-up was conducted for 1 year beginning at the start of the program.
