Abstract

This article has been co-authored by a patient with type 2 diabetes and a specialist dietitian. Here they discuss the patient's experience and difficulties with controlling weight and strategies that can help a patient in this situation. The patient discusses how stress and her corresponding comfort eating dampened weight loss progress, and how adopting a lifestyle change aided through group support helped to deal with this. The physician discusses the importance of recognizing the mental and physical challenges faced by patients in this situation.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 September 2018.
All research outputs
#6,582,613
of 12,680,099 outputs
Outputs from Diabetes Therapy
#114
of 432 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#111,237
of 266,528 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diabetes Therapy
#8
of 30 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,680,099 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 432 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 266,528 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 30 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
