About the book

Metabolic syndrome is a syndrome caused by obesity, high blood pressure, and glycemia. Obesity has become a challenging epidemic, and Obesity-related Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) lead to millions of deaths all around the world

This book aims to provide new insights into metabolic syndrome. The mechanisms of foods intake and appetite will be analyzed. The book will also try to elucidate the peripheral and central controls of appetite. It will then correlate between obesity and diabetes mellites. There is also an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in the world, and no effective treatments are available yet. Therefore the elucidation of the relationship between metabolic syndrome and diabetes is one of the most urgent tasks for clinicians.

Patients with metabolic syndrome often suffer from thromboembolism in the peripheral blood vessels, and thrombosis of coronary blood vessels results in acute coronary syndrome. These patients can also suffer from a stroke. Because of these reasons, the relationship between metabolic syndrome and thromboembolism should be discussed in detail. It is expected that this approach will result in the development of new diagnostic applications and therapies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
