You are invited to submit manuscripts to the Special Issue of “The Role of Sedentary Behaviour in Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes”. This Special Issue focuses on extending our knowledge regarding the role that regular physical activity and limiting sedentary behaviour may have on optimal metabolic and cardiovascular health. Low levels of physical activity and high volumes of sedentary behaviour are associated with a wide array of metabolic and cardiovascular related health outcomes. This includes an increased risk of cardiometabolic risk markers, incident cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, and mortality. We wish to explore this from observational, epidemiological and experimental perspectives in addition to furthering our understanding regarding the effective design, delivery and evaluation of interventions aimed at increasing physical and/or reducing sedentary behaviour.
This Special Issue invites contributions that include (but are not limited to):
- Epidemiology of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in the context of their association with cardiometabolic health, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes;
- Causal and mechanistic effects of exercise, physical activity and breaking up sitting on cardiometabolic health;
- The development and evaluation of interventions to increase physical activity and/or reduce sedentary time and their effects on metabolic and cardiovascular health.
Dr. Daniel P. Bailey
