  Purpose

A type II diabetes prevention programme, named PRAEDIAS was developed. It consists of 12 lessons delivered as group sessions. Die efficacy of PRAEDIAS was studied in a randomized controlled study with 12 month follow up. Control group received written information about diabetes risk. Primary outcome variable was weight reduction at 12 months follow up. Secondary variables were impact of the intervention on glycemic parameters, lipids, eating and exercise behavior and other metabolic risk factors

Experimental: 2
Intervention consists of a group programme (PRAEDIAS) aiming at modification of lifestyle
Behavioral: PRAEDIAS (group programme aiming at modification of lifestyle)
Lifestyle changes, 12 lesson a 90 minutes, delivered in a group setting, consists of analysis of barriers against lifestyle changes, behavior analysis of eating and exercise behavior, modification of unhealthy lifestyle and relapse prevention

Detailed Description:

The PRAEDIAS programme was developed based on the interventions used in the Diabetes prevention study (DPS, Finland) and the Diabetes Prevention programme (DPP; USA). The main purpose of PRAEDIAS was to develop a prevention programme delivered as a group programme to improve cost-benefit ration of diabetes prevention programmes.
