In this editorial, I would like to go through some philosophical aspects in conceptual formulations. Diabetes has been defined as part of metabolic syndrome. Diabetes is associated with insulin deficiency either in concentration or function. This is the classical and traditional picture associated with diabetes type 2. Diabetic complications are also associated with these concepts involving the metabolic points of view.
Congratulations on the inaugural issue of Diabetes Research: Open Access (DROA). Across the world, the necessity of medical practice and research concerning diabetes has been more emphasized. The significant role of this journal will be expected from now.
In recent years, lifestyle-related diseases such as obesity and diabetes have increased worldwide as non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Statistically, 71% of 57 million world deaths in 2016 were from NCDs. The United Nations meeting on NCSs reviewed the global progress for the prevention and control of NCDs, and proposed countdown 2030 for reduction of the burden of NCDs. Among NCDs, diabetes and hypertension have been prevalent and important to manage in the clinical practice.
