Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Type 2 diabetes remains one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the world, affecting ~8-10% of the world’s population, and a trend of continued rise in prevalence. The healthiness of the diets of individuals plays an important role in determining their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. While recent advances in research had improved our understanding on the dietary risks factors for type 2 diabetes, the evidence on some of these emerging dietary risk factors are still limited. We are therefore pleased to invite you to submit your article to the Special Issue “Dietary risk factors of type 2 diabetes” in Diabetology.  This Special Issue aims to publish latest findings to advance our understanding on the dietary risk factors of type 2 diabetes, as well as their determinants. Articles from large cohort studies and clinical trials, as well as those which utilize advanced statistical and study designs (e.g. Mendelian randomization) are particularly welcome. We’d also be pleased to consider narrative and systematic reviews, as well as meta-analyses of recent studies. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:       

  • Carbohydrate quality and risks of type 2 diabetes     
  • Added/Free sugar and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • High protein diets and risks of type 2 diabetes     
  • High fat diets and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • Ultra processed foods and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • Plant-based diets and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • Nuts intake and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • Dietary patterns and risks of type 2 diabetes       
  • Dietary intervention for type 2 diabetes prevention       
  • Socio-economic determinants of dietary risk factors of type 2 diabetes        
  • Public health approaches to improve on the dietary risk factors of type 2 diabetes       
  • Digital interventions to improve on the dietary risk factors of type 2 diabetes

I/We look forward to receiving your contributions.
