Treatment modalities are tailored and recommended based on the type and stage of the disease. Diabetes mellitus has been a significant health concern affecting humanity since ancient times. It is a well-recognized multifactorial metabolic disorder characterized by abnormally high blood glucose levels due to either absolute or relative insulin deficiency, potentially resulting from insulin production deficiency or dysfunction.
