Nutrisystem and the American Diabetes Association Form a Strategic Alliance to Promote the Importance of Weight Loss for People With Type 2 Diabetes
Date:10/26/2009

HORSHAM, Pa., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nutrisystem, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTRI), a leading developer of weight loss products and services has announced a new multi-year alliance with the American Diabetes Association to help educate people with diabetes, healthcare professionals, and the public about the importance of weight loss for people with type 2 diabetes. In addition, through the relationship, Nutrisystem will support the Association's efforts to fund both research and information and advocacy programs on behalf of people with diabetes.

Currently, there are nearly 24 million Americans suffering from diabetes. Nearly all adults with type 2 diabetes are overweight, and more than half are obese.(1) In research studies, even modest weight loss (5-7% of total body weight) has been shown to improve blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease in overweight people with type 2 diabetes.(2)

"Dealing with thousands of Nutrisystem members on a daily basis, we are acutely aware of the connection between diabetes and weight loss," said Joe Redling, Chairman and CEO of Nutrisystem. "We recognize the need to educate people with diabetes about the importance of losing weight and that is why we are proud to support the American Diabetes Association. No other organization does more to support those with diabetes and the groundbreaking research that hopefully will one day lead to a cure for this deadly disease."

As part of its support, Nutrisystem, the marketer of Nutrisystem D, a weight loss program designed to help people with type 2 diabetes lose weight, will launch a series of awareness generating activities aimed at spreading the word about the benefits of losing weight in helping to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association will help develop healthy
