Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Diabetes mellitus, in all its various forms but especially type 2, is intimately linked to hypertension. Indeed, these conditions are risk factors for each other, with the mechanism underpinning the link thought to be related to insulin resistance, obesity, inflammation, and/or oxidative stress. A nutritionally poor diet can contribute to the shared aetiology of both conditions. Treatment for both diabetes and hypertension is underpinned by the diet (e.g., carbohydrate counted/low salt diets), even if additional pharmacotherapeutic approaches are often also used. In this Special Issue, through the publication of reviews and original papers, we aim to highlight the treatment effects that nutrition can have on diabetes and hypertension as well as on their risk factors, metabolic syndrome, and the clinical complications that they can cause. Another intention is to feature dietary effects on the risk of developing diabetes and hypertension.
