Our population is aging, obesity levels are increasing, and the number of patients with Type 2 Diabetes is growing world-wide. At the moment, the NHS spends >£1billion per year on diabetes diagnosis and treatment. Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle disease, which can be prevented or treated effectively by diet and lifestyle interventions. However, specific foods or diets may work for some but not for others. What makes somebody a responder or a non-responder to dietary treatment? Has it anything to do with your DNA, with your body composition, with the fact that you are male or female, with your gut microbiota, or where you live?
