In this editorial we propose a condition that we refer to as 'diabetes fatigue syndrome' (DFS), which is commonly encountered in clinical practice. We define DFS as a multifactorial syndrome of fatigue or easy fatigability that occurs in persons with diabetes. It may be caused by a variety of lifestyle, nutritional, medical, psychological, glycemia/diabetes-related, and endocrine and iatrogenic factors. The authors share clinical pearls which can help the diabetes healthcare provider diagnose DFS, identify its etiologic factors and manage the syndrome. The editorial highlights the need to focus on symptomatic well-being in diabetes, along with efforts to achieve numerical targets.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 November 2019.
All research outputs
of 13,877,566 outputs
Outputs from Diabetes Therapy
of 499 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 276,468 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diabetes Therapy
of 25 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,877,566 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 499 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 276,468 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 25 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
