Emerging risk factors and complications of endocrine disorders

Guest Editors: Dr Michael O'Reilly (Dublin, IE) Dr Nikolaos Papanas (Xanthi, GR), Prof Abdul Basit (Karachi, PK).

Increasing numbers of people are suffering from endocrine disorders including type 2 diabetes. Risk factors and related complications are only beginning to be understood as current treatments are extending the lives of patients for longer. Emerging complications can affect cognition, kidneys, feet, cardiovascular, reproductive and visual systems. Thus, both the illness and co-morbidities are significant burdens and impact negatively on patient lives and healthcare systems.

It is with this focus that BMC Endocrine Disorders launches this special issue summarizing and exploring the current state and future perspectives for risk factors and complications in endocrine disorders.    

We welcome Research Articles, Case Reports, Commentaries, Debates and Study Protocols on all aspects of research into this field, including translational science, data mining and artificial intelligence, clinical investigations, technical advances, epidemiological studies, and clinical trials.

 If you would like to inquire about the suitability of a study for consideration or would like to propose a topic for a Debate or Review article, please email a pre-submission inquiry to

To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system at BMC Endocrine Disorders. Please indicate in your cover letter that you would like the article to be considered for the “Risk factors and complications of metabolic disorders” collection.

Deadline for submissions: 30 June 2020.
