Simple Scoring System Could Help
Patients Avoid Diabetes, Study Suggests
Tool Can Track Reductions in Risk Over Time
A simple scoring system can track the reduction in diabetes risk produced by lifestyle changes and medication in people with pre-diabetes, a new study has found. The findings suggest the potential that the tool could be a good way to motivate patients to stick with the diet and exercise changes that could save them from developing full-blown diabetes.
“We knew that a person’s MetS severity score helped predict their future chances of developing diabetes and heart disease; this was the first time we have been able to show that a decrease in score during treatment reflected a decrease in risk of future disease,” said researcher Mark DeBoer, MD, a University of Virginia Children’s Hospital pediatrician who developed the scoring system with his colleague Matthew J. Gurka, PhD, at the University of Florida. “This means that following the score over time gives a patient an indication if their recent changes in exercise and diet are helping to decrease their chances of developing diabetes.”
