It has been witnessed that obesity encourages diabetes. As per official statistics, nearly 24 million people get affected with diabetes in the US and majority of them are suffering from obesity.
In order to see the effect of weight loss among people, who have been suffering from diabetes, a group of nutrition experts from the UC San Diego School of Medicine are going to initiate a research named as Take Charge.
The study aims to analyze the effect of a commercial weight-loss program on people with Type 2 diabetes as well as among those, who have a BMI between 25 and 45. "We know that commercial weight loss programs can contribute to weight loss. Now we ask if they can have an impact on diabetes”, said Cheryl Rock, who is a Professor in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Rock further affirmed that the problem of obesity is so big that it needs attention from all sides, like medical, surgical and pharmaceutical. Among all the measures, they are keen to know the effect of commercial weight loss programs.
In order to see the effect of weight loss program, the study researchers will be recruiting 234 people, who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
