Effectiveness of a low-intensity telephone counselling intervention on an untreated metabolic syndrome detected by national population screening in Korea: a non-randomised study using regression discontinuity design.

Yi SW, Shin SA, Lee YJ - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Low-intensity telephone counselling was associated with decreased systolic BP (-0.85 mm Hg, 95% CI -1.02 to -0.68), decreased diastolic BP (-0.63 mm Hg, -95% CI -0.75 to -0.50), decreased triglyceride (-1.57 mg/dL, 95% CI -2.89 to -0.25), reduced waist circumference (-0.09 cm, 95% CI -0.16 to -0.02), reduced weight (-0.19 kg, 95% CI -0.24 to -0.15) and reduced BMI (-0.07 kg/m(2), 95% CI -0.09 to -0.05), when comparing the intervention and control groups.When individuals with low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were analysed, the intervention was also associated with increased HDL cholesterol (0.90 mg/dL, 95% CI 0.51 to 1.29).However, the improvements may be very modest and the clinical relevance of these small improvements may be limited.

BMJOPEN2015007603F2: Flow of the study population.

Mentions: In 2012, 5 378 558 beneficiaries who had at least one component of MetS detected at health screening and had not been treated for diabetes or hypertension in the past 12 months were enrolled in the NHIS MetS Management Programme. Of these, 3 958 652 and 1 419 906 participants were categorised as low risk and high risk, respectively (figure 2). In the high-risk group, 206 437 enrollees (14.5%) participated in the counselling programme several months after the baseline examinations.
