Introduction

Obesity is defined as excess adipose tissue. Obesity is a concerned body condition where an individual accumulates so much body fat that has negative impact on his health. Diabetes is a condition where the amount of glucose in our blood is too high and our body cannot use it properly. Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself. Instead, it's a group of risk factors such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol levels, and abdominal fat. When these risk factors combine, they set the stage for serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

New Insights in Obesity: Genetics and Beyond publishes stringently peer-reviewed manuscripts connecting healthcare professionals world-wide to counter the global challenge of obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

New Insights in Obesity: Genetics and Beyond provides a unique global podium to publish latest and updated research findings to prefigure a role in discovering cures for diabetes, obesity and related metabolic syndrome and pushing the demand for innovative reagents for research.

Reasons for Publishing

Diabetes is one of the most challenging health problems in the 21st century. On the other hand, obesity has also become a world-wide rampant issue. It is estimated that if current obesity trends continue, by the year 2030, 86.3% of adults will be overweight or obese and 51.1% will be obese and by 2048 all adults will be overweight or obese. Moreover, diabetes & obesity are major contributors for adverse metabolic effects on blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides and insulin resistance.

Therefore, perceiving the futuristic threat and consequences, New Insights in Obesity: Genetics and Beyond got committed to publish manuscripts providing insights on controlling aspects for metabolic syndrome, equally increasing knowledge as well as stimulating research in the related fields.
