We are experiencing a worldwide epidemic of diabetes. Diabetes mellitus has become a major public health problem. Approximately seven million people develop diabetes in both developed and developing countries every year, with the most dramatic increases occurring in Type 2 Diabetes. Especially alarming is the rising incidence of Type 2 Diabetes in obese children before puberty. However, clinical research has clearly demonstrated that the prevention and reversal of diabetes is achievable, economical, powerful, and confirmed.
In this Special Issue we welcome original research and literature reviews regarding the impact of nutrition and diet factors on the development, treatment, prevention, and reversal of Type 2 Diabetes. The focus of the research should be on whole foods, broad dietary and lifestyle strategies, dietary patterns, intensive personalized treatments, nutritional prevention programs, and food policies that can be used to delay or prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
