Comparative effectiveness of three doses of weight-loss counseling: two-year findings from the rural LITE trial.

Perri MG, Limacher MC, von Castel-Roberts K, Daniels MJ, Durning PE, Janicke DM, Bobroff LB, Radcliff TA, Milsom VA, Kim C, Martin AD - Obesity (Silver Spring) (2014)

Bottom Line: To evaluate the effects and costs of three doses of behavioral weight-loss treatment delivered via Cooperative Extension Offices in rural communities.Cost-effectiveness analyses favored the moderate-dose treatment over all other conditions.These findings have important policy implications for the dissemination of weight-loss interventions into communities with limited resources.

Weight trajectories showing mean reductions (kg) in initial body weight at months 6 and 24. At 6 months, all conditions differed significantly from each other (posterior probability > .996) except for MOD vs. HIGH. At 24 months, the MOD and HIGH conditions had significantly larger reductions than the LOW and CONTROL conditions (posterior probability > .996), and the differences between CONTROL and LOW and between MOD and HIGH were not significantly different.

Figure 2: Weight trajectories showing mean reductions (kg) in initial body weight at months 6 and 24. At 6 months, all conditions differed significantly from each other (posterior probability > .996) except for MOD vs. HIGH. At 24 months, the MOD and HIGH conditions had significantly larger reductions than the LOW and CONTROL conditions (posterior probability > .996), and the differences between CONTROL and LOW and between MOD and HIGH were not significantly different.

Mentions: Six-month changes generally followed a dose response relationship for the CONTROL, LOW, MOD, and HIGH conditions, respectively (Table 3). The 99.2% credible intervals for the differences between the conditions resulted in intervals excluding zero for the following comparisons: CONTROL versus all other conditions; LOW versus MOD; and LOW versus HIGH. At 24 months, the 99.2% credible intervals for the differences between conditions resulted in intervals excluding zero for the following comparisons: CONTROL versus MOD, CONTROL versus HIGH, LOW versus MOD, and LOW versus HIGH. Trajectories for changes in initial body weights, expressed in kg, are presented in Figure 2.
