Micronutrient Interactions and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Cara Nicole Confer, Kathleen Maireid Curran, Haley Marie Stewart
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition characterized by insulin resistance, and thus disruption blood glucose homeostasis. Obesity is one of its main risk factors. Type 2 diabetes requires lifestyle change and weight loss to help improve insulin sensitivity. Research suggests many possible interactions between micronutrients and diabetes, displaying how they play a role in prevention and treatment. The goal of this presentation is to discuss and explain these interactions between diabetes and various related micronutrients. A concept map will be used to present the interactions between the nutrients and their relationship to diabetes.
