ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on a study, conducted by C.L. Gillies and colleagues, which focuses on the effectiveness of pharmacologic and lifestyle interventions in preventing type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) in persons with impaired glucose tolerance. They view that sustained effects from preventive interventions are clinically important. They note that rosiglitazone (RG) has been associated with a 60% reduction in progression to type 2 DM in the DREAM trial.
