Metabolic Diseases: Open Access is a peer reviewed journal that focuses on the publication of current research developments on pathophysiology and therapy of metabolic diseases.
Metabolic diseases occur due to hereditary genetic defects, malfunctioning of vital organs such as liver and pancreas, and imbalance in the hormonal regulation of metabolic pathways.Some of the prevalent metabolic diseases include Diabetes mellitus, Type 1 and Type 2, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, galactosemia, phelylketonuria (PKU), alkaptonuria, maple syrup urine disease, propionic acidemia, Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, Gaucher disease, Zellweger syndrome, Tay-Sachs disease and Morquio syndrome.
The journal encompasses research developments in metabolomics, endocrinology, enzymology, biochemistry and molecular biology of metabolic diseases. Integration of the pathophysiological, genetic and proteomic research data is imperative for the development of highly efficient therapeutic strategies for the treatment of prevalent metabolic diseases, like administration of anti-diabetic drugs, SGLT inhibitors or direct injection of insulin into the body for the treatment of Diabetes.
The Metabolic Diseases: Open Access journal intends to publish recent finding on mitochondrial disorders, inborn errors of metabolism, molecular markers of metabolic diseases and mechanisms of regulation of metabolic pathways. The journal provides contemporary knowledge on the prime factors responsible for the occurrence of metabolic diseases as well as the extant and upcoming panacea for them.
The journal accepts manuscripts in the form of original research article, review article, short communication, case report, letter-to-the-Editor and Editorials for publication in an open access platform. All the articles published in the journal can be accessed online without any subscription charges and will receive the benefit of extensive worldwide visibility.
Processing of the articles will be done through the Editorial Manager System for hassle free operation by the authors and the publisher. It helps in maintaining the quality of the peer review process and provides easy access to the authors to track the process of manuscript evaluation and publication in an automated way.
All the submitted manuscripts undergo peer review, done by the external subject matter experts under the aegis of the Editor-in-Chief or assigned Editorial committee member of the Metabolic Diseases: Open Access journal. Approval of at least two independent reviewers and the editor is mandatory for any manuscript to be considered for publication.
Decreased production of thyroid hormone by thyroid gland results in hypothyrodisim. Symptoms includes tiredness, weight gain, dry skin, constipation, muscle weakness, depression, impaired memory and cretinism in children. Hypothyroidism is diagnosed by measuring the levels of thyroid –stimulating horomone and thyroxine levels in blood.

Hyperthyroidism The thyroid gland produces thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) that play an important role in the body functions. If thyroid gland produces too much T4 and T3, it leads to hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is an endocrine disorder leads, to excessive production of thyroid hormone due to over active thyroid gland. Symptoms involve rapid heartbeat, weight loss, excessive sweating, anxiety and nervousness.

Endocrinology is a branch of medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its hormones as well as the effect of these hormones on major biological functions such as metabolism, growth and development, sleep, digestion, respiration, excretion, stress, lactation, movement, reproduction, and sensory perception. Pancreas is both endocrine as well as exocrine gland. It secretes hormones such as insulin, glucagon and somatostatin. Endocrinology also focuses on study of the biosynthesis, storage, biochemical and physiological function of hormones and with the cells and tissues of the endocrine glands.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone insulin, which result from defects in insulin secretion, or action, or both. Diabetes mellitus Diabetes is a chronic medical condition, meaning that although it can be controlled, it lasts a lifetime. There are three main types of diabetes mellitus: 1. Type 1 DM; 2. Type 2 DM; 3. Gestational diabetes.

Metabolic pathway is a series of chemical reactions occurring within a cell. In a pathway, the initial chemical (metabolite) is modified by a sequence of chemical reactions. These reactions are catalyzed by enzymes, where the product of one enzyme acts as the substrate for the next. These enzymes often require dietary minerals, vitamins, and other cofactors to function.Pathways are required for the maintenance of homeostasis within an organism and the flux of metabolites through a pathway is regulated depending on the needs of the cell and the availability of the substrate. The end product of a pathway may be used immediately, initiate another metabolic pathway or be stored for later use. The metabolism of a cell consists of an elaborate network of interconnected pathways that enable the synthesis and breakdown of molecules (anabolism and catabolism)

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal rate of energy expenditure per unit time by endothermic animals at rest. It is reported in energy units per unit time ranging from watt (Joule/second) to ml O2/min or Joule per hour per kg body mass J/(h.kg)).

Metabolism is closely linked to nutrition and the availability of nutrients. Bioenergetics is a term which describes the biochemical or metabolic pathways by which the cell ultimately obtains energy. Energy formation is one of the vital components of metabolism. Catabolism - the breakdown of molecules to obtain energy. Anabolism - the synthesis of all compounds needed by the cells.

Metabolic Syndrome is a Group of conditions increased blood pressure, a high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Most of the disorders associated with metabolic syndrome have no symptoms, although a large waist circumference is a visible sign. If your blood sugar is very high, you might experience signs and symptoms of diabetes including increased thirst and urination, fatigue, and blurred vision.

Biochemistry also called as biological chemistry (living things). Biochemistry is a branch of science concerned with the chemical and physico-chemical processes that occurs within living organisms. Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms by controlling information flow through biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Biochemistry deals with the chemical compounds and processes occurring in organisms and the chemical characteristics and reactions of a particular living organism or biological substance. The journal of biochemistry focuses on the study of the structure and properties of molecules in living organisms and how those molecules are made, changed, and broken down.

Metabolic acidosis is a condition in which there is too much acid in the body fluids. Metabolic acidosis occurs when the body produces too much acid, or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body.examples are Diabetic acidosis, Lactic acidosis, Hyperchloremic acidosis.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
