Diabetes is a complex disease and is also one of the most common. It is very difficult to reach an accurate estimate for the global prevalence of diabetes since the standards and methods of data collection vary widely in different parts of the world. In addition, many potential sufferers are not included in the count because according to an estimate about 50% of cases remain undiagnosed for up to 10 years. However, according to an estimate for 2010, globally, there are about 285 million people (amounting to 6.4% of the adult population) suffering from this disease. This number is estimated to increase to 439 million by 2030 if no cure is found. The general increase in life expectancy, leading to an ageing population, and the global rise in obesity are two main reasons for the increase.

With the basic platform set, Editor presents his views and advice to the readers, especially to diabetic patients suffering from T2DM, on the basis of his observations and information collected from other diabetics.

From the reviews:

"Part of a series titled Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, this is an overview of diabetes, including diagnosis, classification, pathophysiology, and complications. ... the book is geared to patients with diabetes. ... The short, readable chapters with their excellent and abundant references are the book's best feature. ... The book would benefit from more graphics, such as tables, figures, pictures, and summary boxes. This comprehensive overview of diabetes may be of interest to some patients with diabetes and some healthcare professionals." (Rebecca Brown, Doody's Review Service, February, 2013)
