Lifestyle Management of Type 2 Diabetes in Adolescents

Yet another disappointing news...there have been no good study defining lifestyle changes and how it affects the diabetes control among children and adolescents. even though there have been over 4000 articles written about it.. it is a sad commentary that Diabetes has become fashionable but no one seems to have a good approach to it.. or it is being pressured from other social forces.. Food Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry etc just to think about it..

In search of quality evidence for lifestyle management and glycemic control in children and adolescents with type 2 diabetes: A systematic review

There is no high quality evidence to suggest lifestyle modification improves either short- or long-term glycemic control in children and youth with T2D. Additional research is clearly warranted to define optimal lifestyle behaviour strategies for young people with T2D.
