Special Issue Information
Type 2 diabetes currently causes a major global disease burden, both to the approximately 500 million affected patients and to healthcare systems and society. Treatment options have improved lately and can reduce the risk of devastating organ complications and premature death. They include modern medications to control hyperglycemia and also other risk factors such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and obesity. To enable optimal disease management in the future, there is nontheless a need for better disease understanding and characterization of important metabolic pathways and biomolecules. This will support advancement of precision medicine in type 2 diabetes, which may provide innovative and individualized tools for prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and therepy.
This Special Issue of Metabolites will focus on advances in the field of metabolic regulation and dysregulation relevant to the development, progression, and reversal of type 2 diabetes. Its scope includes, but is not limited to, the pathobiology of cellular signaling, metabolism, and hormone secretion and action. Original research and review papers are welcome and may focus on specific molecular mechanisms and drug targets, metabolic networks, as well as cell and tissue crosstalk. Studies may, for example, utilize metabolomics, but also proteomics, transcriptomics, and microbiomics. We very much look forward to your important contributions to this exciting Special Issue.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
