Title of Collaborative Activity:

Action for Health in Diabetes (Look AHEAD)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Action for Health in Diabetes (Look AHEAD) is a randomized trial comparing the effects of Intensive Lifestyle Intervention (ILI) focused on weight loss achieved through healthy eating and increased physical activity versus a control condition of Diabetes Support and Education (DSE) in overweight and obese individuals with type 2 diabetes. The Look AHEAD Extension (LA-E) will examine whether ILI, provided for 10 years during mid-life, has enduring benefits that persist beyond the period of the intervention for older individuals with diabetes.
