A peer-reviewed online open access journal bringing to the fore outstanding research in the areas of nutrition and chronic disease, including diabetes, from the molecular to the population level.
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
As of January 2021, we are pleased to welcome Leah Whigham, PhD, FTOS, as the new Editor-in-Chief of Nutrition & Diabetes. Leah is Director of the Center for Community Health Impact (CCHI) and Associate Professor with The University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health in El Paso, Texas. With over 20 years of experience in basic, clinical, and community research, her work has increased our understanding of metabolism as it relates to obesity, the influence of nutrients and immune function on body composition, and the impact of the environment on nutrition and physical activity. Leah takes on the role from Nikhil Dhurandhar whom has served the journal for the past three years in this position and has now taken on the role of Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Obesity.
Featured Article - Effects of the resistant starch on glucose, insulin, insulin resistance, and lipid parameters in overweight or obese adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The role of resistant starch (RS) in glucose, insulin, insulin resistance or sensitivity, and lipid parameters remains controversial. This meta-analysis shows that, while respecting individual differences in gut microbiota, supplementation can improve fasting glucose, fasting insulin, insulin resistance and sensitivity, especially for overweight or obese diabetic patients.
