What's the most effective way for people with Type II diabetes to lose weight, and how does that weight loss help them?

Weight Loss Study Background
Those are the questions researchers hope to answer at the end of an ambitious, 11-year weight loss study that will examine the effects of weight loss on people with Type 2, or adult-onset, diabetes. With a budget of $180 million, the weight loss study, to be known as Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes), is the largest project of its kind ever funded by the National Institutes of Health. Participants will include 5,000 volunteers recruited by 16 centers around the country.

Weight Loss Study Method (1)
Wake Forest University School of Medicine, says the study's participants will be randomly divided into two control groups -one receiving close weight-loss instruction and monitoring, and the other attending only occasional educational weight loss sessions.
One group will be attending weekly sessions in which they'll talk about diet and exercise, and, if appropriate, they'll be put on liquid meal supplements or portion-control diets. Counselors will work closely with them to see what can be done about weight loss.

Weight Loss Study Method (2)
The second group will attend just three or four weight loss sessions a year that will provide some background on diabetes management, including advice about how important it is to lose weight if you're overweight. They will also be given information about managing the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes, but this group is not expected to lose much weight.

Weight Loss Study Subjects
Study participants will be people between the ages of 45 and 75 who have Type 2 diabetes and who are overweight, which will be determined using a formula known as the body mass index (BMI).

Weight Loss Study - Diabetes & Weight Loss
Losing weight can be even more of a challenge for people with diabetes than for those who don't have the disease. For reasons that are unknown, people with diabetes tend to have a more difficult time losing weight and keeping it off. About 90 percent of all people who are newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetics are overweight. However, when obese people with Type 2 diabetes lose weight, they often experience a lowering of their blood glucose levels and are then able to decrease their insulin or oral diabetes medications.
