2018-07-13 10:09:12 | BioPortfolio


The study will compare two different programs for lifestyle intervention in type 2 diabetes:

1. A brief group program, with three weekly sessions

2. A longer group program, with six weekly sessions, which has been routinely used for the management of type 2 diabetic patients in this hospital for several years.

The aim is that of demonstrating the non-inferiority of the new brief, and more sustainable, program, in comparison with the more traditional approach.
