A critical link between metabolic disorders and a form of low-grade systemic and chronic inflammation has been recently established and named ‘Metaflammation’. Metaflammation has been recognized as a key mediator of both microvascular and macrovascular complications of diabetes and as a significant contributor to the development of diabetic kidney disease (DKD). The goal of this review is to summarize the contribution of diabetes-induced inflammation and the related signaling pathways to diabetic complications, with a particular focus on how innate immunity and lipid metabolism influence each other.
