Diabetes mellitus is one of the common metabolic disorders responsible for high morbidity and mortality worldwide. The disease results from high plasma glucose levels which affect physiologic functions of body organs including the kidney, blood vessels, liver, eye and peripheral nerves. High glucose levels can be due to insulin deficiency, insulin resistance, drugs, or hormonal imbalance.
