The new consensus report from the American Diabetes Association and European Assocation for the Study of Diabetes (ADA/EASD) recommends weight reduction as a targeted intervention in persons with type 2 diabetes (T2D), shifting loss of baseline body weight from a strategy to improve HbA1C and reduce risk for weight-related complications to a specific goal with benchmark values.
Research shows that weight loss of 5% to 10% leads to improvement in several metabolic parameters and that greater reduction, 10% to 15%, can modify disease course and lead to T2D remission.
Nisa Maruthur, MD, MHS, a coauthor of the consensus report, a primary care physician, and diabetes prevention researcher, told Patient Care® recently these weight loss targets are "absolutely realistic" but also that to succeed, patients with T2D need ongoing support that is not always available.
