Diabetes Prevention in Clinical Practice. (DIAVIP)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Göteborg University Identifier:
First received: April 15, 2013
Last updated: August 22, 2016
Last verified: August 2016
We randomize individuals with impaired glucose tolerance to one of three arms for degree of physical activity: 1. Continue with your current life style; 2. Ordinary life activities for increased physical activity; 3. Scheduled group activities for changed behavior. The overall aim is to focus on change of physical activity and to keep other life style activities more or less unchanged (diet, smoking, etc) and the effect on metabolic variables.

Condition Intervention

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
