Summary A follow-up survey was carried out to examine the effects of a health guidance program by comparing data before and after the intervention.
The six-month guidance program was effective at reducing BMI, HbA1c, and other relevant parameters. Within a year, however, returne to close to the levels at the start of the program was noted. Although most subjects obtained support from their spouse, they did not change their dietary habits because it was difficult for them to seek cooperation from other family members. Thus, it is necessary to improve skills required for health advice.
