Our paper “Electronic Health Lifestyle Coaching Among Diabetes Patients in a Real-Life Municipality Setting: Observational Study” was recently published in The Journal of Medical Internet Research. The study assessed the effects associated with the electronic health (eHealth) intervention among obese diabetes patients in a real-life municipal setting. A real-life eHealth lifestyle coaching intervention was implemented in 8 Danish municipalities between summer 2016 and summer 2018. The results show that the eHealth intervention significantly reduced weight among diabetes patients, on average 4.3% of the initial body mass, which corresponds to 4.8 kg over a mean period of 7.3 months. Patients who were in intervention for more than 9 months achieved a weight reduction of 6.3% or 6.8 kg.
