Diabetes mellitus is the scourge of the modern world. In recent decades, the incidence of type 2 diabetes has risen sharply worldwide due to lifestyle changes, increased consumption of fatty and sugary foods, lack of physical activity, constant stress and other risk factors. Type 2 diabetes usually develops in people over the age of 40, although recently it is increasingly being diagnosed in younger people and even in children. It is characterised by insulin resistance (inability of the body’s tissues to use insulin properly) and reduced insulin production by the pancreas, leading to increased blood sugar levels. At present, there is no universal cure for diabetes, but it is possible to keep the disease under control with a healthy lifestyle, including a hypoglycaemic diet, special exercise and control of weight and blood glucose levels, as well as special drugs as heavy artillery.
