|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Type 2 Diabetes||Behavioral: Intensive lifestyle modification||Phase 2 Phase 3|
The specific aims of the proposed iHealth-T2D study are:
- Determine whether intensive lifestyle modification vs usual care reduces risk of T2D (primary endpoint) amongst South Asians with i. central obesity; ii. prediabetes and iii. overall (with central obesity and / or obesity).
- Investigate secondary endpoints, including health gains in family members. Identify social, demographic and environmental factors influencing primary and secondary endpoints.
- Carry out a health economic analysis of lifestyle modifications vs usual care for prevention of T2D on the Indian subcontinent and Europe. Quantify the cost-effectiveness of screening by waist circumference vs HbA1c.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||3600 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Lifestyle Intervention to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes Amongst South Asians With Central Obesity and Prediabetes|
|Study Start Date :||January 2015|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||November 2018|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2019|
Active Comparator: Intensive lifestyle modification
the investigators will recruit 3,600 South Asian men and women aged 40-70 years with i. central obesity (waist≥100 cm) and/or ii. prediabetes (HbA1c 6.0-6.4%) to the study (Index cases). Recruitment will be from the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) and Europe (UK). Index cases will receive either i. intensive lifestyle modification (N=1,800); or ii. usual care (N=1,800).
Intensive lifestyle modification follows clinically accepted, evidence based strategies to achieve >7% reduction in weight through improved diet and increased physical activity, and is delivered as 9 face-face and 13 telephone contact sessions over 12 months.
Index cases will be followed for three years to identify new-onset T2D.
Behavioral: Intensive lifestyle modification
The intervention is delivered as 9 face-face and 13 telephone contact sessions over 12 months. Index cases are the focus for the intervention, but lifestyle modification encourages the whole family to adopt healthy living.
No Intervention: Usual Care
The investigators will recruit 3,600 South Asian men and women aged 40-70 years with i. central obesity (waist≥100 cm) and/or ii. prediabetes (HbA1c 6.0-6.4%) to the study.
Recruitment will be from the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) and Europe (UK). Index cases will receive either i. intensive lifestyle modification (N=1,800); or ii. usual care (N=1,800).
Usual care group will comprise one diabetes prevention session and written material.
- >7% reduction in weight [ Time Frame: 4 year ]The investigators aim to achieve this outcome by motivating study participants to improve diet habits and increase physical activity
- Reduction of ≥5 cm waist circumference [ Time Frame: 4 year ]The investigators aim to motivate the participants to adopt a healthier lifestyle in order to achieve at least 5cm waist circumference reduction
