In diabetes research Metabolomics is a new approach for discovering unknown diagnostic biomarkers for early detection and monitoring of the disease. Also new insights into the pathogenetic evolution of the metabolic disorder and its late complications are interesting. Since metabolites are intermediates and end product of all metabolic pathways they offer a high chance to identify new biomarkers or metabolic patterns. For that purpose either the number of detected metabolites is maximized or few are quantified in diverse biological samples like body fluids, tissues and cell cultures. Besides a general introduction to metabolomic research also a short summary of current metabolomics analysis in diabetic research will be presented in this review.
