The article reports that a dietitian-led intervention reduced weight and waist circumference in obese patients with type 2 diabetes. Weight, waist circumference, glycémie control fasting lipid levels, use of prescription medications and healthrelated quality of life. In obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, a registered dietitian-led case management intervention was better than usual care for reducing weight, waist circumference, use of prescription medications and improved health-related quality of life.
