    The condition known today as diabetes (usually referring to diabetes mellitus) is thought to have been described in the Ebers Papyrus (c. BCE). Ayurvedic physicians (5th/6th century BCE) first noted the sweet taste of diabetic urine, and called the condition madhumeha ("honey urine"). The term "diabetes" traces back to Demetrius of Apamea (1st century BCE).   This book provides a unique and comprehensive synopsis of the prevention and early diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. It features articles by key opinion leaders in diabetes from North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region who describe the gravity of the problem and the important issue of screening, including contributions on the perspectives of the International Diabetes Federation and the Author: Manfred Ganz.

This chapter emphasizes on the people and ideas used in their recent history of respiratory physiology. It corresponds with several of the major scientists in this area over the past 50 years, who have shared their personal motivation to study respiration and exercise, their own perception of their contributions, and the important questions that remain unanswered in the field.

The treatment of diabetes is dependent on its type and its severity, insulin, exercise, and a diabetic diet is used to treat type 1 diabetes, whiles type 2 diabetes is initially controlled with weight loss, type 2 diabetic diet and physical activity; when these initiatives fail to balance elevated blood sugars, oral medications are.

INTRODUCTION. It is widely known that patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) are at high risk of decreased psychological well-being[] which is already presence in about half of the patients at the time of diagnosis[].This is due to strained coping with changed life routine (such as relationships, work-related and financial issues)[] right from the time of diagnosis of DM[].Cited by: strated in subjects without diabetes (31), in patients with type 1 diabetes (32), and in those with advanced type 2 diabetes (35).

There are 2 main types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes – where the body's immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin ; type 2 diabetes – where the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body's cells do not react to insulin ; Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1.
