A Review of the Literature: Evaluating Dietary Intake of Filipino Americans at Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

Abstract: 

The purpose of this literature review is to investigate the research on the
dietary intake of Filipino Americans. Evaluating the dietary practices of
Filipino Americans may have an effect on the development of type 2
diabetes. Data collection was obtained, and four databases were included:
Pub Medical, Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature,
Journals at OVID, and Medline. The key words used in the search
were “diet,” “type 2 diabetes,” and “Filipinos.” A total of nine articles
were relevant and met the inclusion criteria. The following articles were
excluded: studies in a foreign language, letters to the editor, and program
descriptions.
