Abstract

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders where there is high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period Diabetes is due to either the pancreas not producing enough insulin or the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced. Insulin is the principal hormone that regulates the uptake of glucose from the blood into most cells of the body, especially liver, adipose tissue and muscle, except smooth muscle, in which insulin acts via the IGF-1. Therefore, deficiency of insulin or the insensitivity of its receptors plays a central role in all forms of diabetes mellitus.
