Special Issue "Diabetes: Comorbidities, Therapeutics and Insights"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 4681
Diabetes is one of the most challenging health problems in the 21st century, being projected to affect 700 million people by 2045. In the last 15 years, the number of people diagnosed with type 1 diabetes increased by 45%, and those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes increased by 95%. The most devastating effects of diabetes are its chronic complications, which confer a high risk of morbidity and mortality and an increased health system cost burden. Although there is increased awareness and new therapeutic options in the treatment of diabetes, it is still the leading cause of blindness in working-age adults, the leading cause of kidney failure and dialysis, and the leading cause of nontraumatic lower-limb amputations. People with diabetes have a 2 to 4 times higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which remains the most common cause of death in people with diabetes. Diabetes is a very heterogenous and complex disease and in addition to the traditional risk factors, such as hyperglycemia, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, multiple cellular pathways and potential molecular mechanisms are also implicated in diabetes-induced complications.
Considering this context, we welcome submissions to this Special Issue focusing on diabetes comorbidities, therapeutics, and insights into this disease. Detailed knowledge of this harmful disease is needed to prevent chronic complications and cardiovascular disease/death and optimize quality of life.
