There is no cure for diabetes at the present, but it can be managed with the correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes. By doing so, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications. Balancing the food you eat with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help you control your weight and can keep your blood glucose the main sugar found in the blood and the body’s main source of energy. This can help prevent or delay complication of the harmful effects of diabetes, such as damage to the eyes, heart, blood vessels, nervous system, teeth and gums, feet and skin, or kidneys. Studies show that keeping blood glucose, blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels close to normal can help prevent or delay these problems. In this Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, Section: Molecular Pathology, we are inviting authors to submit original research papers, as well as review articles, to discuss the current understanding of cellular and molecular pathology, function, signal pathways and preventive and/or therapeutic insights in diabetic complications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
