World Diabetes Day

November is Diabetes awareness month and the 14th is always marked as World Diabetes Day. While there are other forms of diabetes, this web focus puts a spotlight on type 2 diabetes. In the summer of 2017 we pioneered a special issue on T2DM in India and China; two nations that will feel the brunt of this escalating disease. Eighty percent of cases of T2DM are preventable through the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. In this European Journal of Clinical Nutrition web focus we offer the reader a range of interesting research covering newer perspectives, clinical nutrition and genetic/molecular insights into the problem. We hope this will enable a better understanding of mechanisms and thereby stimulate pragmatic lifestyle approaches in combating the escalation of this disease worldwide.
