The prevalence of diabetes is on the rise globally, and it is estimated that about 90% of adults currently diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2015). According to the World Health Organisation (2016), an estimated 422 million adults were living with diabetes in 2014 compared with 108 million in 1980 and this condition caused about 1.5 million deaths in 2012.
Strategies for managing type 2 diabetes often include dietary interventions. Therefore, the current Special Issue on dietary intake and type 2 diabetes aims to provide a platform for researchers to publish their research findings. It will also enable patients and others including nurses, dietitians and doctors who are involved in this area of practice to draw on the research findings for management, practice, clinical and professional development.
