Diabetes is a leading cause of death in the world and in Western countries such as Europe and the United States. According to the American Diabetes Association, the total estimated cost of diabetes diagnosed in 2016 was over $ 260 billion, including nearly $ 80 billion in productivity reductions. People with diabetes have about twice as much medical bills as those who don’t have the disease. Medical care for non-healing wounds is also estimated to cost more than $ 50 billion annually. These numbers give an example of the economic impact that diabetes has on the health system and on society. But before diabetes appears manifestly, a condition known as pre-diabetes develops several years before, during which very nuanced symptoms begin to appear, which, in the vast majority of cases, are not given much importance. Even simple alterations in blood tests or changes in biological rhythms, easy fatigue or mood swings are often treated symptomatically.
