Lifestyle interventions can prevent the deterioration of impaired glucose tolerance to manifest type 2 diabetes, at least as long as the intervention continues. In the extended follow-up of the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study, it was assessed the extent to which the originally-achieved lifestyle changes and risk reduction remain after discontinuation of active counselling.
