  • Cost effectiveness [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cost effectiveness by assessing the incremental costs and benefits per case of diabetes prevented and per quality adjusted life year (QALY).
  • Components of Metabolic syndrome [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the difference in incidence of components of metabolic syndrom which includes waist circumference, dyslipidimia, blood pressure etc between control and intervention arm after 2 years of lifestyle intervention.
  • The impact of city planning on prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The communities will be divided according to number and accessibility of parks. The community with large number of parks will be compared with community with no parks and then change in incidence of diabetes and obesity after 2 years of lifestyle intervention will be assessed and compared between two communities. By this it would be feasible to convince local authorities to incorporate this into their agenda for future urban design.

(Pakistan Diabetes Prevention Program PDPP)
A Translation Randodomized Trial of Culturally Specific and Cost Effective Life Style Intervention for the Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes in Pakistan

The Karachi-based Pakistan Diabetes Prevention Study aims to address key issues in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. Approximately 20,000 people From four communities will be screened for diabetes risk factors using a non-invasive diabetes risk-score system. Those found to be at increased risk will be given an oral glucose tolerance test. People who, after the oral glucose tolerance test, are identified as having prediabetes will have the opportunity to take part in the Pakistan Diabetes Prevention Study lifestyle intervention. This consists of culturally adjusted preventive strategies focusing on diet and physical activity in real-life settings. Another important aspect of this trial will be to assess the impact of urban planning on the prevalence of obesity and diabetes.

  • Standard
    Pre diabetics randomized to control arm will receive standard life style advice which is given to all pre diabetics seeking medical advice.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Life style counseling
  • Experimental: life style intervention arm
    This arm would be given aggressive life style intervention in comparison to standard (control) arm. The intervention would consist of nutritional and physical activity advice.
