Special Issue "Obesity, Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease"
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: 31 May 2022.
Interests: obesity; insulin resistance; gut microbiota; mesenchymal stem cells; liver steatosis; glomerulopathies
Obesity is often overlooked as a cause of morbidity and mortality in contemporary society; nevertheless, it is the deadliest condition worldwide today. As such, we are proposing a Special Issue in IJERPH dedicated to the interconnected obesity, diabetes, and chronic kidney disease clinical entities. Original research and systemic review manuscripts are invited not only in the classical field of insulin resistance/type 2 diabetes and diabetic kidney disease, but also pertaining to the other aspects of the multifaceted relationships between excess body weight and glucose disturbances or renal injury. Among others, these would include renal contexts of adipose tissue microinflammation, liver steatosis, dyslipidemia, gut dysbiosis, all types and stages of glucose disturbances, diet and physical activity, hypoglycemic therapies, as well as obesity-related glomerulopathy. Epidemiological, public health, environmental, and clinical research is mostly anticipated in line with the profile of the journal, but experimental studies related to the topic are also welcome.
