Lifestyle change is universally recommended for patients with type 2  diabetes and cardiometabolic disease, yet, the majority of clinical  practice, educational programs, and clinical trials within these chronic  disease spaces focus on medication use and procedures with insufficient  emphasis on lifestyle medicine. The concept of lifestyle medicine can  serve as a countermeasure, acting through aspects of personal choice,  natural and built environments, cultural traditions, and socioeconomic  influences that affect the metabolic health of an individual. Lifestyle  Medicine for Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, and Cardiometabolic Disease  provides clinical evidence and mechanistic understanding for the six  pillars of lifestyle medicine. It guides the reader to identify  opportunities for early intervention rather than a focus on the  diagnosis and treatment of the established disease. Interventions at  earlier points have the potential to mitigate progression, prevent  complications, reduce costs, and improve a patient’s overall health at  all points in their lifetime.
