  Purpose
The aim of our study is to see if people with metabolic syndrome who attend a group education programme based on lifestyle changes (dietary and increased physical activity) can lessen their risk of having diabetes, heart disease and strokes in the future.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of people in the intervention and control groups with prevalent metabolic syndrome according to the IDF criteria. [ Time Frame: 12 months follow-up. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The prevalence of metabolic syndrome according to NCEP criteria [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in individual components of the metabolic syndrome (fasting plasma glucose, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, blood pressure, waist circumference), and 2 hour glucose [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in biomarkers (hs-CRP, adiponectin, and insulin) [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in physical activity as measured by IPAQ and pedometer [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in dietary/nutritional intake measured by DINE [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in Framingham risk score [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in quality of life as measured by EuroQol EQ-5D [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in depression/anxiety as measured by HADS [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]
  • Changes in general self-efficacy as measured by GSE [ Time Frame: Compared at baseline versus 12 months, and for the intervention group versus the control group ]

Detailed Description:

People who have a combination of risk factors termed metabolic syndrome are at increased risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and strokes. Metabolic syndrome is a major public health concern requiring urgent action because 25% of the adult UK population fulfil the criteria, and this will increase as people continue to be less active and levels of overweight and obesity rise.

The aim of our study is to see if people with metabolic syndrome who attend a structured group education programme based on lifestyle changes (dietary and increased physical activity) can lessen their risk of having diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the future. Overall, we hope to show that this type of education reduces the number of people who have metabolic syndrome.

Subjects recruited with metabolic syndrome will be randomised to intervention or control arms. The intervention arm will receive group education and the control group will receive routine care.

The results will inform primary prevention strategies in people from varied ethnic backgrounds who are at high risk of developing type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Aged 40 - 74 years inclusive
  • Registered with a general practice in Leicester City or Leicester County Primary Care Trust
  • Availability of data to allow diagnosis of MetS (IDF criteria) collected at a screening visit

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous diagnosis of T2DM, CVD (stroke/cerebrovascular accident, transient ischaemic attack), peripheral arterial disease, or coronary heart disease (angina, myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplasty)
  • Life-limiting terminal illness
