Recently a new promising strategy has been introduced to the well-established approaches in diabetes research. Biomedical metabolomic analyses comprise the examination of metabolite patterns in different body fluids, tissues or samples from cell culture experiments with the objective to maximize the simultaneous detection of intermediate and end products of metabolism. Metabolomic analysis in diabetes research could provide new insights in the pathogenetic scenario of prediabetes, diabetes and its late complications as well as the discovery of novel diagnostic biomarkers. This review provides an overview of metabolomic analyses and a summary of current research results in metabolomics in diabetes research.
