2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Systematic Reviews

Systematic Review Question

What is the relationship between acculturation, dietary intake, and risk of type 2 diabetes?

Conclusion Statement

Conclusions regarding the relationship between acculturation and type 2 diabetes cannot be drawn due to limited evidence from a very small number of cross-sectional studies and study populations, as well as limitations in acculturation assessment methodology that did not take into account potential confounders and effect modifiers and lacked standardized assessment of outcomes.
