Will mentors help prevent diabetes?

The BBC recently reported that a five-year project will take a look to see if providing mentors to those who are considered pre-diabetic will help stop the development of diabetes within these patients. Researchers in Norfolk have begun the study that will screen 10,000 people for the disease by having them take a fasting glucose test. The Diabetes Prevention Mentors are members of the public that have already been diagnosed with Type 2 that will call their assigned mentees regularly to help educate and motivate them to meet their goals within the program.
