Diabetes can be genetic; autoimmune, medical related or even diet related. In this article causes and treatment of diabetes is discussed in detail. It includes glimpse of novel technologies like patches, pump and pens, etc. It also includes momentary of other treatment like oral and Injectable hypoglycemic drug and surgical treatments. A glance of latest innovation for measuring glucose level in body with help of sweat, breath and saliva are explained.
