Abstract

Diabetes mellitus can be a devastating lifelong disease if not treated appropriately. The physician and the patient should be aware of both extremes involved with DM: hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. Patient education and preventive care are perhaps more important in this disease than many others. A multidisciplinary approach involving the patient, physician, and diabetic educator is best to assure a better quality of life. Enormus advances in the treatment of diabetes have occurred over the past decade and even greater ones can be expected in the future. New drugs, insulin delivery devices, and noninvasive glucose monitoring machines have the potential to normalize blood sugar levels and return diabetics to a near normal lifespan without complications [90,91].
