Diabetes has emerged as one of the most serious and common chronic diseases of our times, causing life-threatening, disabling complications, and reducing life expectancy.
The many risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) include lifestyle decisions and reduced physical activity that result in excess body weight.
