Ground-breaking study to cap the growing trend of type 2 diabetes in overweight adolescents
Date:6/1/2009

rom this serious long term chronic condition," she said.

"We want to give our young people the best possible start to life and find the best way to help them deal with a difficult problem. With early intervention insulin resistance is potentially reversible, or at least the progression to type 2 diabetes can be delayed."

The program will see 108 adolescents aged between 10 and 18 take part in a diet and exercise regime.

Participants will follow one of two diets. The first will be based on the currently recommended Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, which is high in carbohydrates and low in fat. The second will follow a lower carbohydrate and increased protein diet.

"Teen-friendly diet models will be used to enhance compliance with the aim of reducing insulin levels and helping young participants lose weight," said Dr Sarah Garnett Principal Researcher from the Westmead Children's Hospital.

"We believe the project is the first of its kind. There is little evidence currently available to establish the best diet to control insulin resistance in adolescents and the role of protein in the diet,' said Dr Garnett. "This will tell us the advice we can give these kids that will actually work."

The program involves an intensive three month dietary intervention and a three month intensive gym and home based exercise program. The participants will be followed up for six months to measure the program's effectiveness.
