Abstract / summary in English:

This is the final report of the project ‘Reversing type 2 diabetes: nutrition as medicine’. With this Ekhagastiftelsen grant, we were able to provide scientific, practiced-based evidence on the effectiveness of using nutrition and lifestyle as medicine. It showed real-life robust, durable benefits of this lifestyle group program for type 2 diabetes patients, particularly in terms of medication use, body weight and quality of life. It forms the basis to incorporate lifestyle intervention programs as these as part of regular medical practice.
