Diabetes mellitus is a devastating disease affecting ~500 million people worldwide, and complications of diabetes are major causes of morbidity and mortality. Indeed, diabetes is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, end-stage renal disease, blindness and non-traumatic lower-limb amputation. Diabetes-related costs are also huge, and this burden is expected to dramatically increase over the years as a result of several factors including the increasing incidence of diabetes, the increasing number and use of expensive glucose-lowering drugs and the need to treat diabetes-related complications requiring hospitalization.
