About Johan Jendle

Johan Jendle is a professor in medicine at the institute of Medical Sciences, Örebro University, Sweden. He is also director for the Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism Research Center.


His research mainly focuses on diabetes. Ongoing projects aim to develop guidelines on physical activity and diabetes in order to reach good glucose control and optimize physical performance.

Johan Jendle is also involved in new glucose lowering drugs (i.e. SGLT-2 inhibitors and GLP-1 Receptor Agonists), smart insulin pumps, as well as new continuous monitoring systems enabling measurement of glucose and other metabolic factors.

Other research areas and covers research on health economy and diabetes, screening of diabetic retinopathy and new treatment options for obesity with intragastric ballons to support sustainable weight loss and diet fibers to reduce insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes. Other research areas are the associations between ADHD diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

He has authored or co-authored more than 100 papers published in peer-reviewed journals. He is also a regular reviewer and invited speaker at local, national and international scientific meetings.

His research on physical activity and diabetes has led to a number of clinical dissertations and development of different international guidelines within diabetes and sport medicine.

Furthermore Prof Jendle is a member of the working group for continuous glucose monitoring systems in the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine ( IFCC).

In 2015 Johan Jendle identified a new disease, due to an unique mutation in the gene coding for antidiuretic hormone (AVP) and leading to a specific type of familial diabetes insipidus, now named Jendle's disease.
