Diabetes, often referred to as diabetes mellitus, is a metabolic disease in which the patients' blood glucose levels remains high. Depending on the cause of development of diabetes, it can be divided into three types:

Type 1 diabetes (or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus): In this condition, the pancreas do not produce the required amount of insulin, leading to high blood glucose levels.

Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus): In this condition, though the body produces the required amount of insulin, the cells do not respond to it, increasing the glucose levels in the body.

Gestational diabetes: This condition occurs in pregnant women without any prior history of diabetes

Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, is a result of the body's inability to produce enough insulin or insulin resistance or both. It is managed by providing symptomatic relief and improving the quality of life. Type 2 diabetes accounts for nearly 90%-95% of the total number of diabetes cases worldwide and is primarily diagnosed in the middle-aged and old age groups, i.e., between the ages of 30 and 75 years. However, it can occur even during childhood. The risks of type 2 diabetes include high blood pressure, advancing age, obesity, history of gestational diabetes, family history of diabetes, poor nutrition during pregnancy, physical inactivity, and impaired glucose tolerance.

Technavios analysts forecast the global type 2 diabetes drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 7.28% during the period 2016-2020.
