In the past 30 years, six trials investigated the effects of lifestyle interventions on the development of type 2 diabetes in people with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), which is a pre-stage of diabetes (see ‘Criteria for diagnosis of DM, IFG, IGT’). A total of 5,496 people were included in these trials and initially followed up for 3 to 6 years. In all trials the effects of a lifestyle intervention, that included a combination of healthy eating and increased physical exercise, were compared with no intervention or usual care.
