Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
You are invited to submit manuscripts to the Special Issue of “The Role of Sedentary Behaviour in Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes”. Sedentary behaviour is highly prevalent in modern society and is associated with a wide array of adverse health outcomes; this Special Issue focuses on the role of sedentary behaviour in cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. It is important to understand if the volume and pattern of sedentary behaviour (e.g., prolonged sedentary bouts and breaks in sedentary time) are associated with the incidence of these diseases, and what role physical activity may play in such relationships. The causal effects of different protocols for breaking up sitting time in different population groups on cardiometabolic risk markers requires further exploration in addition to understanding the mechanisms that are responsible for the observed metabolic effects. Sedentary behaviour may play an important role in the prevention and management of cardiometabolic disease. However, there is limited evidence regarding the development, implementation, and effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing and breaking up sedentary behaviour, particularly in groups that already suffer from cardiometabolic disease.
This Special Issue invites contributions that include (but are not limited to):
- Epidemiology of sedentary behaviour and cardiovascular disease/type 2 diabetes;
- Causal and mechanistic effects of breaking up sitting (e.g., laboratory and free-living experiments);
- The development, evaluation, and effectiveness of interventions in reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes or that help with the management of these diseases.
