Diabetes and Endocrinology (DE)

Yoshifumi Saisho(Editor-in-Chief)

The Diabetes and Endocrinology (DE) Journal is dedicated to providing global, authoritative, and independent forum for high impact clinical research and opinion. This journal covers all visible and underlying facts about endocrinology, diabetes, metabolism, obesity, osteoporosis, and bone metabolism. Details and other specifics about thyroid, lipid and adrenal disorders are likewise reviewed and discussed.

The journal’s main objective is to publish contents that have a high-impact on medical practice, which can influence its better performance and outcome. Relatively, the scope of the journal is to deliver essential research, expert review, and candid commentaries that would provide the proper context and perspective on significant advances that shape these fields.

To properly ensure the clinical relevance and scientific merit of the diabetes and endocrinology journal, meticulous steps are taken to stringently edit its diverse contents and are peer reviewed on a regular basis.

  • Efficiency and Safety of New Insulin Infusion Protocol for Japanese Patients After Open-Heart Surgery

    The authors examined the appropriateness of an IIP, which was modified to fit the Japanese population, who were usually less obese and less insulin-resistant. This IIP maintained blood glucose levels within the target range in patients who underwent open-heart surgery as equally well as the previous empirical therapy. These findings confirm the efficiency and safety of our IIP with less burden in blood glucose management of Japanese patients.
