Implementing a nationwide community-based lifestyle intervention program may help prevent or delay 885,000 type 2 diabetes cases and produce nationwide savings of $5.7 billion within 25 years, according to a study in Health Affairs. Another study published in the same journal suggested that wide-scale implementation of evidence-based interventions -- such as new risk-assessment methods and new care models to support lifestyle change -- may help prevent the onset of diabetes and its complications.
