Diabetes has become a worldwide epidemic and presents one of the most challenging health problems of the 21st century because of its rising prevalence in both developed and developing nations ("International Diabetes Federation. IDF Diabetes Atlas 7th Edition. Brussels, Belgium," 2015; "World Health Organization. Global report on diabetes. ," 2016), its significant associations with excess cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality, and inexorable health care costs (Emerging Risk Factors et al. 2010; Rao Kondapally Seshasai et al. 2011; Zimmet & Alberti 2016).
