Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by a high blood glucose level over a prolonged period of time. It is classified into six categories: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, hybrid forms of diabetes, hyperglycemia first detected during pregnancy, "unclassified diabetes", and "other specific types". In 2017, 425 million people had diabetes worldwide, and that number is growing. Type 2 makes up about 90% of the cases. The WHO estimates that diabetes is the 8th leading cause of death.

We are organizing a Special Issue (SI) on the new insights in diabetes mellitus. We invite the submission of manuscripts (original research or review articles) about the pathophysiological concepts of all types of DM. In addition, we welcome critical remarks on the current criteria of diagnosis of DM. We want to include the pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapeutic options, evidence-based treatment algorithms, and novel experimental therapies. We encourage the authors to focus on prophylaxis and reducing complications strategies. In the field of environmental research, we seek papers about social, economic, and cultural changes in public health. We call for manuscripts about specific groups of patients, such as pregnant women, adolescents, older patients, and patients with comorbidities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will publish overviews and meta-analyses about the implication of the viral infection on the course of DM. The latest achievements in molecular biology, for example, assessment of gut microbiome, for this metabolic disorder are anticipated. Papers combining a high academic standard with a practical focus are especially welcome.
