Dr. Jha has conceptualized and designed a lifestyle intervention study for prevention of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). This study is on-going at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, New Delhi. He is also leading the largest community-based study being conducted in India (iHealth T2D Study), in collaboration with Imperial College, London. Aim of this study is to evaluate simple tools for identification of Indians at high risk of diabetes based on either a blood test (HbA1c-overall 3 months average blood sugar status) or measurement of waist size, as both are predictor of diabetes. Our approach in this study is to promote health through lifestyle modification (healthy diet, increased physical activity) in a simplified manner without medication in pre-diabetes individuals.
