Rui Li, et al, publishes an article about the cost-effectiveness of diabetes prevention interventions, entitled “Cost-Effectiveness of Interventions to Prevent and Control Diabetes Mellitus: A Systematic Review” in Diabetes Care. The article arrives at the following conclusion: “Many interventions intended to prevent/control diabetes are cost saving or very cost-effective and supported by strong evidence. Policy makers should consider giving these interventions a higher priority.”
