We are thrilled to welcome you to the Autumn 2018 edition of European Endocrinology. The journal will be available at the EASD congress in October 2018 and therefore has a strong focus on current practices and research in diabetes. Different areas are explored; new treatments for management, self-monitoring and flash monitoring of blood glucose, obesity and the financial burden of insulin therapy. Other areas of endocrinology are also discussed, including recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of acromegaly, adrenocortical carcinoma and hypogonadism in male childhood. We would like to thank all of our contributing authors and our editorial board for their continuing support. We welcome all members of the endocrinology community to submit articles to our Spring 2019 edition. Read our call for submissions for more information, and please visit our submission system if you have a paper to submit. Happy reading!
