The association between dietary patterns and type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies

Alhazmi and colleagues report the findings of their meta-analysis that shows the strength of the relationship between dietary patterns and type 2 diabetes. The review included 15 papers which featured a measure of T2DM and dietary pattern. Dietary patterns that were classified as less healthy (high meat, high fatty foods, sugar sweetened beverages, processed meats) were found to be significantly associated with diabetic risk (RR 1.44, 9%% CI 1.33-1.57).
