Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease that requires aggressive management to prevent complications. Despite scientific advancements and many innovative approaches in diabetic management, diabetes remains the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. The global prevalence of diabetes continues to escalate, as do the costs associated with caring for those living with diabetes. In 1980, approximately 108 million people were reported to have diabetes . In 2014, according to the US census 2015, over 422 million individuals were diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes is the main cause of end-stage renal failure, heart disease, blindness, and amputation. Furthermore, approximately sixty-five percent of patients who are diagnosed with diabetes die from cardiovascular disease. Maintaining glycated hemoglobin levels within normal limits is paramount to ensure good diabetes management. The World Health Organization (2018) noted that by maintaining a normal glycated hemoglobin level (less than seven), individuals can prevent or delay diabetes and associated complications.
