Do exercise and diet interventions, alone or in combination, prevent type 2 diabetes mellitus?


Studies selected compared exercise plus diet or exercise alone with standard recommendations or no intervention, or exercise alone with diet alone, for ⩾6 months and reported incidence of diabetes in people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Studies of pharmacological agents were excluded. Outcomes included incidence of type 2 diabetes; glucose tolerance; fasting glucose, cholesterol, and triglyceride concentrations; blood pressure; body weight; body mass index; waist-to-hip ratio; and waist circumference.
