Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity are predicted to be two of the greatest public health problems of the coming decades globally. Worldwide, the prevalence of Diabetes is increasing and vascular complications are the main cause of death. Indeed, during 1988–2000 the annual all-cause mortality rates among T2DM patients were 25.2 per 1000 person-years compared with 9.5 per 1000 person-years in those without diabetes in the US population age 35–74 years. Cardiovascular (CV) disease mortality in this diabetic population was 11.1 per 1000 person-years compared to 3.4 per 1000 person-years in those without diabetes.
