The article discusses a study conducted by doctor G.D. Foster and colleagues to know whether an intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) is better than diabetes support and education (DSE) for weight loss and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. A randomized controlled trial was conducted at 4 university sites in the U.S. and it was found that ILI improves weight loss and obstructive sleep apnea more than diabetes support and education.
