Special Issue Information
Diabetes is a global public health challenge. The majority of diabetes is type 2 diabetes (T2D) which is closely related to lifestyle factors including diet. In the context of the ongoing nutritional transitions across diverse global regions especially in developing areas, the role of nutritional strategies in the prevention and management of diabetes is becoming crucial. Despite mounting epidemiologic evidence linking various food groups or nutrients to the development and progression of T2D, the corresponding application to dietary practices remains challenging. This is partly because of the difficulties in clarifying the independent role of one food/nutrient beyond the others as well as potentially reduced adherence when the consumption of a single unhealthy or healthy food is recommended to be very low or high. The dietary pattern approach, which considers a broad picture of individual dietary components or focuses on overall eating habits, has emerged as a common method used to address the diet-disease relationship. In general, findings from such a dietary-pattern approach are more practical for nutritional recommendations and dietary practices. This Special Issue of Nutrients was proposed to collect epidemiologic studies using such an approach to evaluate the impact of dietary patterns or eating habits on the development of diabetes, regulation of glucose metabolism, or management of diabetes-associated complications.
Collecting population-level nutritional evidence that could facilitate the establishment of more practical dietary strategies for diabetes prevention and management.
The outcome of interest could be diabetes incidence, measures of glucose metabolism, or diabetes-associated complications (e.g., diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy, or nephropathy and peripheral arterial disease). Studies that include diabetes-only participants are also welcome. Observational studies, intervention studies, or systematic reviews/meta-analyses that meet the following scopes are welcome, and studies that incorporate multi-omics to improve the understanding of the association between diet and diabetes-associated outcomes are particularly appreciated:
- Dietary patterns or eating habits (e.g., eating frequency, eating time) in relation to diabetes, glucose metabolism, or diabetes-associated complications;
- Biomarkers (especially those identified using metabolomics) for dietary patterns in relation to diabetes, glucose metabolism, or diabetes-associated complications;
- Impact of dietary pattern-genetics interaction on diabetes, glucose metabolism, or diabetes-associated complications.
