Journals for Professionals

Scholarly journals are key information resources for your doctors. The American Diabetes Association publishes four prestigious journals that help your doctors stay abreast of the latest research and state-of-the-art approaches to care.


Diabetes is a journal for scientists studying diabetes and its causes. The studies published in the journal seek to uncover how diabetes works and how it leads to complications such as vision loss and nerve damage. The cutting-edge research in Diabetes could, over time, lead to new medicines and therapies for diabetes and may one day lead to a cure. Find out more about Diabetes.
