BMJOPEN2015008222F1: Flow diagram of literature search to identify meta-analyses and randomised controlled trial evaluating the effect of Mediterranean diet in type 2 diabetes and prediabetic states.

Mentions: We identified 2824 studies in database searches (figure 1). Of these, 2680 were excluded based on the title and abstract, leaving 144 articles for further full text evaluation. One hundred and thirty of these studies were excluded, most of them focusing on components of the Mediterranean diet only, RCTs not in agreement with inclusion criteria or already covered by published meta-analyses. Therefore, eight meta-analyses16–23 and five RCTs24–28 were eligible. Agreement between observers on which studies to include was good: the к scores for agreement between the two reviewers were 86% after screening titles and abstracts, and approached 100% after screening full-text articles.
