Abstract

Welcome to our final publication of 2017. This edition is bountiful and it extends our understanding of diabetes and obesity more completely. It is also extensive and involves research undertaken in Iran, Nigeria, Guinea, the Western Cape, and Johannesburg. As such, it highlights many of the “on-the-ground” challenges the developing world, including South Africa has to contend with. This edition also remains wide in its span and it alludes to many aspects of diabetes-obesity and includes basic science research, dietary application, public health challenges, quality of life and non-communicable disease, clinical outcomes and guideline updates.
