Diabetes is one of the world’s most prevalent and fastest growing chronic diseases without cure.
It is also a life-threatening condition characterized by a decline in function of pancreatic islet cells and consequent loss of insulin production. Insulin is a hormone critical to the conversion of sugars and starches into energy. Loss of insulin leads to multiple serious illnesses, making diabetes one of the leading causes of heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness and amputation.
