The prevalence of diabetes is increasing rapidly. Overeating, leading to obesity and overweight, is often considered the main determinant of this increase. However, evidence is accumulating that physical inactivity may be as important a factor in the development of diabetes as being overweight. The reviews in this issue of Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism discuss the current knowledge on the role of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
