Among patients with diabetes who lost weight, those who maintained their weight loss significantly improved their cardiometabolic risk factors compared with those who regained weight, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
The benefits, including improvements in HDL, triglycerides, glucose, BP, waist circumference and diabetes control, were greatest among patients who lost at least 10% of their body weight and maintained at least 75% of their weight loss at 4 years, according to the researchers.
