Interests: diabetes mellitus; thyroid diseases; metabolic syndrome; complications
We invite you to participate in this Special Issue of JCM on “Prevention, Treatment, and Complications of Diabetes Mellitus”. As you well know, diabetes mellitus (DM) is a major health problem and, due to complications, is one of the leading causes of blindness, kidney failure, and lower limb amputation. Furthermore, DM notably increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and reduces the quality of life.
Although the prevention of type 2 DM based on lifestyle criteria (e.g., nutritional recommendations and physical activity) is well established, no such approaches have yet been demonstrated for type 1 DM, and there are currently no firm proposals for transferring efficient prevention measures to clinical practice.
Regarding treatment, that for type 1 DM continues to be based on insulin therapy with multiple injections or on the implantation of continuous insulin infusion systems, and for both, the application of sensors that continuously determine glucose levels represents a remarkable advance for metabolic control. On the other hand, the treatment of type 2 DM has become more complex, with multiple proposals oriented toward individualization depending on the characteristics of the patient (age, comorbidities, weight, empowerment, and cost).
We look forward to receiving your submissions to this Special Issue.Prof. Dr. Manuel Aguilar-Diosdado
