Wu, Lihua and While, Alison (2007) Weight management in people with type 2 diabetes. British Journal of Community Nursing, 12(9), pp. 390-397. ISSN (print) 1462-4753


This article sets out a comprehensive outline of the mechanism for the development of Type 2 diabetes and the importance of weight reduction in Type 2 diabetes management. Current weight reduction strategies are reviewed. Lifestyle modifications form the frontline strategy for targeted weight loss in diabetes care. However, there is a lack of knowledge regarding effective and safe interventions to promote weight management for those who have already developed Type 2 diabetes.
