Clearly, the cumulative costs of long-term (probably life-long) therapy with medications (even where generic versions are available and no adverse effects occur) can be prohibitive, particularly for developing countries. For reasons that have already been argued, the use of drugs for diabetes prevention cannot be recommended as a first-line approach in the general population. 4 Desirable characteristics of an ideal drug for diabetes prevention Efficacy: should equal or exceed the efficacy of lifestyle intervention Mechanism(s): should repair the pathophysiologic defects that underlie prediabetes Glucoregulation: should normalize glucose metabolism Durability: effects should outlast the period of medication exposure Adiposity: should induce weight loss or be weight-neutral Safety: should have minimal toxicity and require no safety monitoring Tolerability: should be well tolerated, without GI or other adverse effects Cost: should cost less than the least expensive drug for diabetes treatment Adapted from [28, 69] and durable medications for diabetes prevention.
Thus, such data would need to be determined through pilot studies in different communities. Fewer S. Dagogo-Jack face-to-face counseling sessions in group format, supplemented by virtual contacts (via SMS text messaging, e-mail, or web-based platforms) could be a less expensive approach to harnessing the power of contact in diabetes prevention efforts. Along these lines, webbased lifestyle programs have been reported to have modest but variable effects on weight loss in studies reported from Australia, the United States, Europe, and Asia [99–103]; however, extrapolation to populations with lower literacy and uncertain digital access is questionable.
