Diabetic Complications

Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Metabolism Open access Journal covers special section Diabetic complications publishes articles on research involving dysmetabolic disorders and complications like diabetic nephropathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy, skin and foot complications. Also, it considers the studies on diagnosis, pathogenesis, related syndromes and clinical management to prevent diabetes.

Diabetic nephropathy

Diabetic nephropathy is also known as macroalbuminuria characterized by Persistent albuminuria, Progressive decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), elevated arterial blood pressure. Severe damage can lead to kidney failure. This may require dialysis and kidney transplant.

Diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is characterized by prolonged elevated levels of blood glucose. Excessive sugar levels can damage blood vessels that nourish nerves. Symptoms includes pain and numbness in upper and lower extremities to problems with your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and heart.

Diabetic retinopathy

Diabetes can damage the blood vessels of the retina and severe damage can leads to blindness. This also increases the risk of vision conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma.

Skin and Foot complications

Diabetes may leads to skin problems includes bacterial and fungal infections. Nerve damage in the feet or poor blood flow to the feet increases the risk of various foot complications. Cuts and blisters can develop serious infections, which often heal poorly. These infections may ultimately require toe, foot or leg amputation.

Hearing impairment

Diabetes can increase the risk of hearing damage.

Alzheimers disease

Diabetes may leads to Alzheimer's disease. Especially Type 2 diabetes may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Poor control of blood sugar increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Cardiovascular Interrelationship with Diabetes

Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Metabolism Open access Journal covers special section cardiovascular interrelationship with diabetes includes research related to the cardiovascular relationship and mechanisms in diabetes, metabolic disorders, hypertension, autonomic dysfunctions and chronic diseases. The section encourages articles from clinical trials on cardiopathy diabetes, epidemiology, metabolic studies, information systems and methodologies implemented to monitor, measure and improving medical care quality.

Endocrinology Mechanisms

Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Metabolism Open access Journal covers special section Endocrinology Mechanisms aims to publish research information on the endocrine metabolism involved in diabetes development and physiological disorders. The primary focus is on hormonal regulations and dysfunctions including gender aspects of insulin resistance, mechanisms of insulin, growth factors, beta cell functions, lipid mediators, disease interactions and pathogenesis. The section accepts studies on signalling mechanisms and clinical outcomes, methodology aspects and novel alternative therapies.

Genetics and Epigenomics

Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Metabolism Open access Journal covers special section Genetics and Epigenomics welcomes articles on genetic studies and genomic analysis on the causes generating diabetes. This also includes gene function and regulatory relations resulting in metabolic disorders, epigenetics, pharmacogenomics and polymorphisms for diabetic diagnosis and therapy. The section also considers studies on family genetics and related disorders.

Gestational and Pediatric Diabetes

Journal of Diabetes Research and Clinical Metabolism Open access Journal covers special section Gestational and Pediatric Diabetes focus on the diabetic conditions among women during pregnancy, initial screening, diagnostic performances, personal and family history of diabetes, risk assessment, treatment modifications, food safety and long-term considerations for monitering the offspring. The section also includes primary healthcare and clinical practices on diabetes in newborn children to the age of adulthood.
