Integrative Obesity and Diabetes (IOD) is a peer-reviewed, online open access journal dedicated to publish articles in all areas of endocrinology, obesity and diabetes. The journal prioritises to publish high quality papers focused on cutting edge research in the prevention, pharmacological treatment, management, and education in any aspect of endocrionolgy, obesity, diabetes and related disorders. Integrative Obesity and Diabetes is publishing the articles concerned with all aspects of metabolic regulation related to type 1 and type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes,recent advances dealing with etiology and treatment of metabolic disturbances associated with obesity and diabetes, involving endocrinology, molecular/genetic, biochemical, neuroanatomical, systems biology, dietary, metabolic and integrative physiological approaches, peripheral and central regulatory pathways of carbohydrate, lipid and energy homeostasis in humans and animals. Interventions could include diet, exercise, lifestyle, surgery, and/or pharmacotherapies.

Integrative Obesity and Diabetes (IOD) accepts original research articles, review articles, editorial, case reports and short communications on all the aspects (genetic, molecular, biochemical and physiological) of endocrinology, obesity and diabetes for review and possible publication. The journal invites review articles that are balanced, comprehensive and provide new and/or critical analysis of any aspect of drug therapy (or non-pharmacological intervention) relevant to patients with diabetes, obesity or related disorders. The journal will also consider publication of letters to the editor commenting on research already published in the journal, as well as manuscripts describing new hypotheses or clinical trial protocols.

Articles published in this journal are subjected to rigorous peer review and revision process before being accepted for publication, to maintain quality and the standards set for academic journals. This Journal ensures the barrier-free distribution of its content through online free access and thus helps in improving the citations for authors and attaining a good impact factor.

IOD welcomes direct submissions of manuscripts from authors. You can submit your manuscript to: [email protected] ; alternatively to : [email protected]

Katsunori Nonogaki


Dr. Nonogaki is a specialist of diabetes care and Internal medicine. He has obtained PhD in Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Diabetes. Then, he worked as a Postdoc Research Fellow at the University of California, San Francisco and the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla. During this period, his research has mainly focused on “the role of the central nervous system in the regulation of hepatic glucose production”, “cytokines and lipid metabolism”, and “ brain serotonin systems and energy homeostasis”. He found the novel evidence in the dissociated pathways of serotonin 5-HT2C receptor and leptin in the central regulation of appetite and obesity, and proposed a novel physiological theory of “central dissociated regulation of feeding and autonomic neural circuits”. Lorcaserin (Belviq), a selective 5-HT2C receptor agonist, which is used for the treatment of obesity, is based on the original research works by Dr. Nonogaki et al. Current studies are to determine the physiological mechanisms and potential treatment for obesity, diabetes and their complications. Dr. Nonogaki is also developing novel medical devices for hypertension and diabetes.

Research Interests: Serotonin network, GLP-1 network, feeding regulation, hepatic glucose and lipid metabolism, and medical device in the treatment of diabetes and hypertension.

  • Diabetes and Hypertension

    Editor Affiliation:

    Katsunori Nonogaki
    Tohoku University, Japan

    Description of the Special Issue: Hypertension is an extremely common comorbid condition in diabetes. Hypertension substantially increases the risk of both macrovascular and microvascular complications, including stroke, coronary artery disease, and peripheral vascular disease, retinopathy, nephropathy, and possibly neuropathy. In recent years, adequate data from well-designed randomized clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of aggressive treatment of hypertension in reducing both types of diabetes complications. This special issue aims to widely discuss epidemiological connection between hypertension in diabetes and adverse outcomes of diabetes, non-drug management of hypertension in diabetes, drug therapy of hypertension in diabetes, and/or novel approaches for the prevention of macrovascular and microvascular complications.
