Kuwait is among the countries with the highest prevalence of type II diabetes globally with 12.4%. Lifestyle modifications are important in the treatment and management of type II diabetes, and they are routinely recommended in general practice. However, lack of resources, especially time, as well as a resistance by patients to change their lifestyle, result in poor compliance and subsequently a greater risk of complications. The objective of this study was to investigate new methods of lifestyle interventions, which can be easily, implemented in general practice, and whether these interventions can improve glycaemic control in diabetes patients in Kuwait. Based on a detailed literature review, several group educational sessions have been developed, which focus on different aspects of lifestyle modifications, such as exercise and dietary changes. These interventions were tested in 18 months, twoarm randomised controlled trial of 40 male Kuwaiti (age: 30 to 60 years) with glycaemic control as primary endpoint. All study participants underwent detailed screening, including anthropometry and detailed diet and lifestyle assessment. Here, the preliminary screening results and the study protocol will be presented. The results of the study will allow a comparison of easily delivered, low cost lifestyle intervention in primary care with other treatment methods for type 2 diabetes. It will therefore be able to inform future public guidance for the management of diabetes in Kuwait.
