Type 2 diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by persistent hyperglycemia owing to impaired insulin secretion by the pancreas and multi-organ insulin resistance.
It is an expanding global health problem, affecting approximately 6.28% of the world's population, as of 2020. While lifestyle management is fundamental to the care of type 2 diabetes, most patients with type 2 diabetes eventually require medications to prevent or delay complications and maintain quality of life.
