[Comment] Diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic syndrome: a call for papers for EASD and the World Diabetes Congress

Diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic syndrome are starting to overtake communicable diseases as major threats to health worldwide. The prevalence rates of diabetes and obesity are rising sharply, and while some of the causes are clear—for example, adverse changes in physical activity and diet, led in some populations by demographic change—better strategies for prevention and treatment are still needed. Research into treatment, public health and education interventions, and epidemiology is urgently required to address this epidemic.
