Special Issue Information
Diabetes had always been thought of as a disease which is mainly prevalent in high-income countries, but in fact, the rate of this disease is also rapidly growing among people from low- and middle-income countries. According to statistics published by the WHO, 1.5 million people died due to diabetes as a direct cause in 2019, and there was a 5% increase in premature mortality from diabetes between 2000 and 2016. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic made the situation for diabetic patients worse: patients with diabetes not only have a higher chance of serious complications from COVID-19 infections, but also, those with COVID-19 infections have increased risk of developing diabetes even with mild infections. Given the many issues presented by diabetes and its complications, such as diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, cardiovascular disease, and stroke, this Special Issue will investigate current perspectives and future directions regarding how metabolites can help in the understanding and treatment of these diseases.
