Treatment of diabetes mellitus has improved in recent years due to progress in insulin therapy. However, this condition remains extremely serious. After 20 years of disease evolution, approximately 50% of diabetic patients will present complications or secondary signs of the disease (nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy, enteropathy, and arteriopathy) (West et al. 1980).
