Effects of Caloric Restriction in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

The study investigates whether a long-term 25% caloric restriction can prevent onset and/or progression of renal function deterioration, retinal involvement and cardiovascular complications in overweight/obese type 2 diabetic patients, trough the amelioration of concomitant metabolic abnormalities such as visceral obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, hypertension and inflammation.

The main aim of the study is therefore to evaluate the role of calorie restriction (CR) on subjects at risk of nephropathy. Secondary aims are to better understand the relationship between CR and the following aspects: renal disease and its associated metabolic abnormalities, retinopathy and cardiovascular complications, quality of life and treatment cost.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Behavioral: Calorie restriction (25%)
  • Behavioral: Ad libitum health diet
  • Experimental: Calorie restriction (25%)
    CR will correspond to a reduction of 25% from the total daily calorie expenditure calculated as Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) (kcal/d) using the formula from the validated Seven-Day Physical Activity Recall (PAR) Questionnaire (RMR x activity levels).
    Intervention: Behavioral: Calorie restriction (25%)
  • Active Comparator: Ad libitum health diet
    Intervention: Behavioral: Ad libitum health diet

  • Primary or immune-mediated renal disease;
  • Urinary tract obstruction or infection;
  • Treatment with steroids and/or non-steroid anti-inflammatory agents;
  • Treatment with thiazide or loop diuretics that, on the basis of the Investigator's judgment, might sustain hypovolemia and/or sodium depletion (with secondary kidney hypoperfusion/hypofiltration);

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in treatment with positive airway pressure;
  • Unwillingness or inability to adhere to CR intervention over the entire 24-months intervention period;
  • Legal incapacity and/or other circumstances rendering the patient unable to understand the nature, scope and possible consequence of the trial;
  • Evidence of an uncooperative attitude;
  • Any evidence that patient will not be able to complete the trial follow-up;
  • Inability to fully understand the potential risks and benefits of the study.
