Autonomic Neuropathy in Diabetes Mellitus and Obesity: An Update

Description

Autonomic neuropathy is one of the most insidious complications of diabetes which can be life-threatening, as it predisposes to cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death. Moreover, autonomic neuropathy, even in its subclinical forms, has been described in other conditions characterized by insulin resistance, most prominently obesity. Knowledge on the broad spectrum of autonomic neuropathy manifestations, but also on its treatment, certainly needs enrichment.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles with a special focus on autonomic neuropathy, which will help in our better understanding of this condition, the mechanisms behind its development, and possible treatment modalities. We are particularly interested in articles addressing ways of detecting autonomic neuropathy even in its early stages; the pathophysiology of autonomic neuropathy, either in animal models or in humans; manifestations of autonomic neuropathy in diabetes and obesity; new insights in possible treatment modalities; strategies for the prevention of autonomic neuropathy, arrhythmias, and sudden death. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in the detection of autonomic neuropathy
  • Cardiac autonomic neuropathy
  • Autonomic neuropathy and hypoglycemia
  • Sudomotor dysfunction
  • Baroreflex sensitivity
  • Diabetic diarrhea and its treatment options
  • Diabetic gastroparesis
  • Data on autonomic dysfunction in obesity and its clinical significance
  • Genitourinary neuropathy (bladder control, sexual dysfunction)
