The researchers found that diabetes risk during DPPOS
was 56% lower for participants who had returned to normal glucose regulation versus those who consistently had prediabetes.
Specifically, diabetes risk was reduced 47% in DPPOS
if normal glucose regulation was attained only once (HR, 0.53); 61% if it was reached twice (HR,0.39); and 67% if it was reached three times (HR, 0.33)," the investigators said (Lancet 2012 June 9 [doi: 10.106/S0140-6736(12)60525-X]).
