The prevalence of diabetes type 2 is increasing dramatically all over the world, especially among South Asians whom migrated to western countries. There are several reasons for this, among other things a change in food habits and lifestyle as a consequence of migration. Despite this huge challenge, there is still lack of good interventions towards South Asians with high risk to develop diabetes type 2. Language and cultural barriers are important reasons for the earlier interventions having poor compliance. In order to handle this it would be an advantage to utilize bicultural as well as bilingual health workers in interventions. To empower the South Asian women is essential since they are more exposed to develop diabetes type 2. Even though women are the main responsible in serving meals, it is still important to include the whole family as a unit in interventions to achieve long-term healthy food habits. The earlier target group for interventions has been the working class, but migration studies have shown that with increasing integration as well as an increase in income, changes food habits in an unhealthy manner. Because of this it is important to include the middle class as well. We have found that future interventions on diabetes type 2 would benefit when these factors mentioned above are included.
