Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Obesity and diabetes mellitus are increasing at rapid rates in the population worldwide, leading to many health problems. Obesity and diabetes increase the risk for cardiovascular disease, along with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, and genetics/family history. Many people who have type 2 diabetes are overweight, and there are clear pathophysiologic links between obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes. In fact, the commonality of excess weight, hyperglycemia, hypertension, and atherogenic dyslipidemia has led to the concept of the metabolic syndrome.

This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine will cover the following important aspects of obesity, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome:

  • Lifestyle interventions for obesity and diabetes
  • Medical and surgical treatments for obesity
  • Effect of gastric bypass surgery on insulin sensitivity
  • Involvement of white and brown fat in human disease
  • Mechanisms by which diabetes increases cardiovascular disease
  • Effects of glycemic control on microvascular (renal and retina) and macrovascular (CAD and stroke) disease
  • Relationships between diabetes and hyperlipidemia
  • Management of prediabetes
