Diabetes mellitus type 2 occurswhen the pancreas(an organ in the abdomen) produces insufficientamounts of the hormone insulin and/or the body'stissues become resistant to normal or even high levelsof insulin. This causes high blood glucose (sugar)levels, which can lead to a number of complications if untreated (Votey, 2009).
 
Type 2 diabetes is a chronicmedical condition that requiresregular monitoring and treatment. Treatment includeslifestyle adjustments, self-care measures, and sometimesmedications. Fortunately, these treatments can controlblood sugar levels in the near-normal range and minimizethe risk of developing diabetes-related complications. Inthe United States, Canada, and Europe, about 90 percentof all people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Diabetesmellitus is one of the leading causes of morbidity andmortality in the United States because of its role in thedevelopment of optic, renal, neuropathic, andcardiovascular disease. These complications, particularly cardiovascular disease (~50-75% of medical expenditures),are the majorsources of expenses forpatients with diabetesmellitus. In Philippines, according to the 2007 mortality rate survey of Department of Health, Diabetes Mellitusranked 7 among the top 10 leading causesof death.
