Nutrition constitutes one of the cornerstones for the therapy of diabetes mellitus (DM). All types of DM require proper nutritional education, management, and audit. Nutritional status and dietary intake are established as contributors to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). In addition, adherence to specific dietary regimes has been suggested to reverse DM, indicating that the role of nutrition extends beyond secondary prevention. The research on the effect of medical nutrition therapy on DM is longstanding and continuous, aiming to identify nutritional factors that could improve patient outcomes.
This Special Issue of Nutrients is focusing on the association between nutrition and all types of DM. It is designed to discuss contemporary issues that are of keen interest to both nutritionists and diabetologists. Its aim is to aggregate novel research and revisit older issues in one volume, bringing together nutritionists, dietitians, clinicians, and other health professionals, while presenting high-quality evidence and updating the existing perspective on nutrition and DM. Authors are invited to submit their work, including original research, reviews, meta-research, and opinion papers, showcasing important issues governing DM and nutrition.
We are looking forward to your submissions.
