Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia, developing insulin resistance, β-cell dysfunction and impaired insulin secretion. Several multiple metabolic disorders including impaired lipid and lipoprotein metabolism, oxidative stress, sub-clinical inflammation, vascular endothelial dysfunction and hypertension have commonly been accompanied with type 2 diabetes; these metabolic disorders lead to long-term pathogenic conditions such as micro- and macro-vascular complications including neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy, and a decreased quality of life and an increased mortality rate.
Despite availability of multiple pharmacological interventions including oral hypoglycemic agents and insulin therapy for diabetes management, current evidence shows an alarming trend in the occurrence of undesirable complications in the patients.
