Type 2 diabetes and hypertension are two major global health problems that are responsible for many disabilities, increased healthcare costs and, most importantly, an increased rate of mortality. Although there are several options for drug intervention, lifestyle changes are always the cornerstone of both prevention and treatment. Nutrients, food items, and dietary and lifestyle patterns have proven effective and several mechanisms have been described to support the protective roles of such interventions on both type 2 diabetes and hypertension. Yet, we are still at the beginning of identifying the most appropriate lifestyle changes for preventing and treating these diseases.
The present Special Issue aims to gather the latest findings on nutrition and lifestyle interventions for Type 2 diabetes and hypertension prevention referring to both patients or apparently healthy children and adults. Authors are invited to submit relevant review articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and original contributions for consideration for inclusion in this Special Issue.
