Resumen

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes mellitus (DM) remains a public health issue, with an estimated 165 million people living with diabetes in 2000, over 240 million diabetics in 2010, and projected to increase to ~300 million in 2025. Of the 165 million people with diabetes, about 19 million were in Latin America and the Caribbean. DM, whether due to defects in insulin synthesis and secretion, insulin action, or both (absolute or relative insulin insufficiency), is a common non-communicable disease, with irreversible complications to organs vital to the overall general well-being and survival of patients. Indeed, DM involves several metabolic disorders characterized by chronic hyperglycemia, and is a leading cause of disability and death world-wide.
