EC Diabetes and Metabolic Research

EC Diabetes and Metabolic Research (ECDMR) is an internationally peer reviewed journal that desires to publish articles on all aspects of Diabetes and Metabolism, diagnosis, management and prevention of Diabetic and Metabolic disorders. The journal aims to publish clinical and experimental work on all the topics related to Diabetes and Metabolism. The main motto of ECDMR is to bring latest developments and current research in Diabetes and Metabolism into light by publishing quality and original articles. We deal with all aspects of Diabetic and Metabolic disorders and therapeutic interventions.

Aim and scope

Metabolism refers to the chemical reactions that take place inside the cells of living organisms which are essential for life. The metabolism of people with diabetes is almost identical to the metabolism of people without diabetes. The only difference is the volume and/or effectiveness of the insulin produced by the body. Research on Diabetes and Metabolism is very essential as Diabetes has become one of the huge problems that are being faced. Today, both clinical and basic research on Diabetes and Metabolism has become most essential. Scientific research is also taking place to look for causes and possible treatment in Diabetic and Metabolic disorders. Advancements in the field of Diabetes and Metabolic Research play a major role in building a safe and healthy society.

ECDMR accepts articles on all the topics related to Diabetes and Metabolism such as Lipid disorders, Osteoporosis, Cardiovascular and Metabolic Risk, Obesity, Psychosomatic Research, Ethics, Metabolic Disorders, Interdisciplinary Practices in Endocrinology, Aging Research, Traditional Medicine, Behavioral Medicine, Diabetes Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity, Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Therapy, Diabetes Metabolic Memory, Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Metabolic Syndrome, Pharmacology of diabetic metabolic disorders, Pharmacotherapy of Diabetic Metabolic Disorders, Clinical Studies on Diabetic Metabolic Disorders, Diabetes Metabolic Disorders Views, Complications in diabetes Metabolic Disorders, Genetic Studies in Diabetes Metabolic Disorders, Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Risk, Metabolic Disorders and Cardiovascular Risk, Metabolic and Cardiovascular Risk, Oxidative Stress Markers in Diabetes Metabolic Disorders, Heterogeneity in diabetic Metabolic Disorders, Melatonin Role in Metabolic Disorders, Apoptosis in Diabetic Metabolic Disorders, HIV in Diabetic Metabolic Disorders, Smoking in Diabetes, Matrix Metalloproteinases in Diabetes, Liver Enzymes in Diabetes, Anthropometric Studies in Diabetic Metabolic Disorders, Depression in Metabolic Disorders, Insulin Therapy in Metabolic Disorders, Diabetes and Hyperglycemia, Pre-Diabetes, Insulin Resistance, Diabetes & Abdominal Fat, Hyper/High Fasting Blood Glucose, Diabetes & High Carbohydrate Diet, Diagnosis of Diabetics, Pathogenesis of Diabetics, Clinical Management of Diabetics, Diabetic Retinopathy, Neuropathy and Nephropathy, Peripheral Vascular Disease and Coronary Heart Disease, Gastrointestinal Disorders, Renal Failure and Impotence, Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia, Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetic Nephropathy, Diabetic Neuropathy, Gastrointestinal Disorders, Glomerular Filtration Rate, Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia, Impaired Glucose Tolerance, Insulin Resistance, Islet Transplantation, Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, Renal Failure and Impotence, Amino Acids and Proteins, Anabolism, Carbohydrates, Catabolism, Coenzymes, Detection and Prevention of Hypoglycemia, Diabetes Classification, Aging Research, Diabetic Emergencies, Endocrinopathies, Osteoporosis, Epidemiology, Metabolic Disorders, Exocrine Pancreatic Defects, Genetic Defects in Insulin Processing or Insulin Action, Genetic Defects of β-cell Function, Nucleotides, Pathophysiology, Xenobiotics and Redox Metabolism, etc.
