International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus, 4th Ed., Excerpt #98: Metabolomics: Applications in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Insulin Resistance Part 4

Future directions and potential application of metabolite profiling in type 2 diabetes: metabolomics approaches have unmasked a variety of metabolic pathways influenced by T2DM or insulin resistance, moving the field of metabolic physiology beyond a “glucocentric” viewpoint of these conditions. However, a difficulty in interpretation is that the fasting concentration of a metabolite only reflects a single moment in time, and etiology or tissue origins of any metabolite differences across comparator groups requires further validation.
