Diabetes & Metabolism Disorders
Obesity is an individual clinical condition of energy imbalance of the metabolism often linked with civilization or lifestyle diseases. It is increasingly viewed as a serious public health problem.
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities associated with an increased risk for coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and cancer.
Diabetes mellitus is a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism characterized by persistent hyperglycemia. Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is an autoimmune disease resulting in insufficient production of insulin. Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and gestational diabetes (GDM) are due to insulin resistance by cells. T2DM is closely associated with obesity and MetS.
