About the Journal

Diabetes Research- Open Journal (DROJ) aims to serve the scientific community and provide Diabetes information focusing on: the various causes for diabetes; diagnosis; treatments; prevention; education; management; research; and quality of care.

Diabetes is a systemic disease which causes higher than normal blood sugar levels, and results in a number of symptoms and complications of varying severity. While the symptoms and complications are similar, treatment will vary depending on the type of Diabetes that is diagnosed; the disease is classified into various types, based upon the underlying pathophysiology.

Thus, a diagnosis of Diabetes is usually classified as either Type I or Diabetes Mellitus (DM); or Type II or Diabetes Insipidus (DI). Type I Diabetes is caused by a failure of the beta cells in the Pancreas to produce sufficient insulin; while Type II Diabetes is due to cells' inability to recognize the insulin that is being produced; a phenomenon known as 'insulin resistance'. Gestational Diabetes is a third, less common type of diabetes specific to pregnant women.

DROJ strives to provide widespread and open access to detailed, up-to-date, and reliable information of the highest quality on all matters related to Diabetes - including: effective disease prevention measures, management strategies, and pharmacological treatments; innovative research findings and applications; and associated disorders - through Openventio Publisher's Open Journal approach.
