Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a pandemic of great concern among the nutrition-related non-communicable diseases. Its prevalence is mounting worldwide, particularly in underserved communities and minority groups. In 2019, 463 million people were diagnosed with T2DM, a number expected to increase to 578 million by 2030 globally. The prevalence of T2DM is increasing the mortality rate from cardiovascular complications. The social and health costs of treating this disease is currently 11% of the global health budget. This project aims to utilize an evidence-based approach to assess lifestyle interventions' effectiveness at decreasing the Hemoglobin A1c levels in T2DM individuals after 3 months of lifestyle modifications.
