Ayanwale Abdulahi | Jacqueline I. Goodship | Isaac A. Rodriguez


Abstract: The purpose of this article was to review type 2 Diabetes management interventions among obese Hispanic youth. The population targeted was Hispanic youth ages 11 - 17 that resided in the U. S. - Mexico border. Following the PRISMA guidelines, a search of the online databases PubMed, Science Direct, Google Scholar, and EBSCO was conducted for identifying research articles with intervention components. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) management interventions with a population focus on obese Hispanic youths were selected. Six studies were included in the review. The majority of the interventions focused on a behavioral intervention that included weight management, physical activity, individual, group counseling, and lifestyle modification. All studies focused on improving weight status and a management approach for T2D. From the interventions, there has been a moderate effect in decreasing BMI among their participants through proper educational awareness such as diet and types of physical activities to execute. The Effective Public Health Practice Project, Quality Assessment Tool for Quantitative Studies (EPHPP), was conducted to evaluate the selected articles. Three articles resulted in a global rating of 2 (moderate), and the last three articles resulted in a global rating of 3 (weak). Few published articles resulted in having a significant impact on T2D management among the target population. The interventions focused on behavioral and physical outcomes reported more self - management interventions on how youths may adopt an improved lifestyle.
