This book will enlighten on some of the recent progress in diabetic care and therapy. Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because of the inability of cells to respond to the insulin that is produced. According to the recent report of W
