Waiting Room “Classroom” for Diabetes Management
Almost 10% of the US population has diabetes, with another 34% in a precarious state of prediabetes. Research demonstrates that lifestyle interventions, particularly those incorporating personalized nutrition therapy, produce clinically meaningful improvements in diabetes. Integrating this research foundation into the clinical setting is key. A recent study describes a 20-week clinical trial conducted by an endocrinology private practice in Washington, DC. Utilizing the waiting room to deliver weekly group-based nutrition education classes, the study examined the effects of two eating plans, low-fat vegan and portion-controlled, on cardiometabolic outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Intermittent Fasting Improves Cardiometabolic Disease
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that alternates between periods of eating and fasting. Research has demonstrated the efficacy of intermittent fasting for weight management and metabolic health. It is unclear whether the metabolic benefits of intermittent fasting result from concomitant weight loss or independently via other mechanisms. Researchers from The University of Alabama at Birmingham conducted a controlled feeding trial in men with overweight and prediabetes to investigate whether early time-restricted feeding yielded cardiometabolic benefits, even in the absence of weight loss.

In the US,
- Every 34 seconds: someone has a heart attack
- Every 83 seconds: someone dies of a heart-related event
- Every 4 minutes: someone dies of a stroke
The suffering and loss associated with these statistics are immense and particularly tragic since cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a preventable condition. We now know that CVD is caused by unhealthy dietary patterns that progressively injure endothelial cells and promote arterial plaque formation. Dr. Rooke will discuss this science and the growing body of evidence supporting the use of plant-based diets in the prevention and treatment of CVD.
