Presentation: Feasibility of Time-Restricted Eating for Prevention and Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes
Jonas S. Quist, MSc, PhD
Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen
What is your presentation about?
Time-restricted eating (TRE) has been suggested to be feasible and to improve body weight and cardiometabolic health in individuals with overweight and obesity. The presentation will provide an overview of the available evidence on feasibility of TRE in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes.
What makes this topic important in 2023?
During recent years, TRE has received much attention. Several studies have investigated effects of TRE on body weight and cardiometabolic health in individuals with overweight and obesity. A better understanding of the feasibility of TRE is important in order to design future studies and sustainable initiatives.
How did you become involved with this area of diabetes research or care?
Maintenance of lifestyle changes is challenging for many people and there is a need for feasible strategies. This became clear to me during my MSc and PhD studies on exercise training in individuals with overweight and obesity. At that time, pilot data suggested that TRE could be an effective and feasible strategy and we initiated RCTs on TRE in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes with comprehensive qualitative assessment of feasibility and involvement of the target group in the design of the intervention.
How do you think your presentation will impact diabetes research or care?
The presentation will provide information about possible determinants of retention and adherence which can inform the design of future TRE studies.
What are you most looking forward to at the 83rd Scientific Sessions?
To get updated on the latest diabetes research and get inspiration for new studies and collaborations.
