Washington DC: As per a new study by medical researchers, regular exercise and healthy food habits may reduce the short-term onset of knee pain for overweight adults with type 2 diabetes. Assistant Professor at the University of Delaware, wrote an article which was a key study for 2015 at the Osteoarthritis Society’s international meeting. The study compared subjects receiving intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) to a group receiving standard diabetes support and education (DSE) to measure knee pain at the end of one year and four years. White and his colleagues conducted a secondary analysis of the Action for Health in Diabetes study, a randomised intervention of trial adults aged 45 to 76 years who were obese and had Type 2 diabetes mellitus. The Action for Health in Diabetes study began in 2001.White said that the analysis involved a group of 2,889 subjects, who reported no knee pain at baseline, but were at high risk due to obesity. The primary method of achieving weight loss was caloric intake restrictions, based on guidelines from the American Diabetes Association. The diet limits total calories from fat to 30 percent while mandating at least 10 percent of calories to be obtained from protein.
