Newly Published Clinical Study Finds New Commercial Diet Program Superior to Standard Protocol for Diabetes Weight Loss and Blood Sugar Control
Date:9/8/2009

HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- -- Results from a clinical study conducted at the Temple University School of Medicine and published today in the journal Postgraduate Medicine(1), show that a pre-packaged, portion controlled meal plan helped overweight individuals with type 2 diabetes lose significantly more weight and reduce their A1C test scores (a 90-day measure of blood sugar control) by almost a full point greater than those following a standard hospital-based diabetes support and education program, according to the findings. This weight loss was also associated with significant reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol and waist circumference.

The research team, led by Dr. Gary Foster, Director of the Center for Obesity Research and Education at Temple University School of Medicine, followed 69 (49 F, 20 M) overweight people with type 2 diabetes, a body-mass index of 39.0 +/- 6.2 kg/m2 and a hemoglobin A1C of 7.5 +/- 1.6%. Participants were randomly assigned to either a portion-controlled diet (Nutrisystem D) or a diabetes support and education program (DSE).

In the study, the Nutrisystem D group lost significantly more weight (8.2 +/- 5.2 kg compared to 0.6 +/- 2.6 kg) (p < .0001) and experienced greater reductions in A1C levels (-0.88 +/- 1.10 versus 0.03 +/- 1.09; p < .001) compared to the DSE group after three months.

"Weight loss brings impressive improvement in the control of diabetes," explains Dr. Foster, the principal investigator of the study. "People with diabetes have to perform mental gymnastics when they attempt to lose weight- balancing carbohydrates, fats and proteins with overall calories, all while keeping their blood sugar in check. The complexity can cause many people to become frustrated and give up."

"The pre-packaged and portion controlled Nutrisystem D meal program seems to alleviate some
