Special Issue "Epidemiology and Prevention of Diabetes"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 October 2021.
Diabetes mellitus is a serious threat to global health that respects neither socioeconomic status nor national boundaries. People living with diabetes are at risk of developing a number of serious and life-threatening complications, leading to an increased need for medical care, a reduced quality of life, and undue stress on families. Diabetes and its complications, if not well managed, can lead to frequent hospital admissions and premature death. Globally, diabetes is among the top 10 causes of death. Given the importance of diabetes, the journal International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is launching a Special Issue entitled “Epidemiology and Prevention of Diabetes” with the aim of gathering together accurate and up-to-date scientific information on all aspects of diabetes. We are pleased to invite you and your co-workers to submit your original research articles reporting on health-related quality of life, mental health, health services utilization, disability, pain, comorbidities, hospitalizations, and pharmacological interventions. We would also like to invite you to submit review articles aimed at providing a comprehensive overview of the epidemiology and prevention of this disease.
