Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

About 500 million people worldwide have diabetes. It is a major burden both to those affected and to society as a whole. In recent years, the options for prevention, treatment and care have markedly improved. Nonetheless, diabetes and its comorbidities, in particular chronic organ complications, still are linked to a decreased quality of life, disabilities, premature death and major health-economic challenges to society. It is paramount to further improve our tools to counter the progression of hormonal and metabolic derangements of diabetes as well as of macro- and microvascular damage that eventually leads to debilitating conditions, such as cerebrovascular, heart, kidney, nerve and eye disease.

In this Special Issue on ‘Metabolism in Diabetes Progression and Diabetic Complications’, we aim to collect several important papers on diabetes and its complications, focusing on markers, mechanisms and therapeutic principles that will improve understanding and management of diabetes progression. The scope includes the early development of diabetes, continuing alterations in the regulation and action of insulin and other hormones as well as the development of chronic diabetes complications and other comorbidities. The contributions may be in the format of original papers as well as reviews. We welcome your submissions during the period of March–December 2023.

Prof. Dr. Jan W. Eriksson
Guest Editor
