major new study to determine if Type II diabetes can be prevented or delayed

You'll hear about a major new study to determine if Type II diabetes can be prevented or delayed. Called the Diabetes Prevention Program sponsored by the Nat'l Institutes of Health, CDC, and the American Diabetes Assoc.

The incidence of Type II diabetes is increasing...rapidly. It's because people are getting heavier, more sedentary, and living longer.

The new study will enroll patients who are at risk of developing diabetes because of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). People with IGT have hyperglycemia...but not high enough to be classified as diabetes.
