Diabetes mellitus is a complex, progressive disease, which is accompanied by multiple complications. It is a metabolic disorder of the endocrine system and listed among the most common disorders in both developed and developing countries. It has a global metabolic epidemic and it is estimated that the number of people affected by the disease will rise from the current 150 to 230 million by 2025. Hyperglycaemia is a characteristic feature of diabetes mellitus and chronic hyperglycaemia could lead to long-term complications in the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.
The fundamental treatment and management goals in diabetes mellitus are to control and normalize blood glucose levels and to prevent diabetic complications. It also includes maintaining normal growth and development and normal body weight. Proper diet, regular exercise, weight control and different therapeutic agents are the mainstays of diabetic care and management. Weight reduction and exercise have been shown to improve tissue sensitivity to insulin and allow its proper use by target tissues.

Abstract In this article, we investigate the Dirichlet problem for a porous medium equation with a more complicated source term.
The most common identiﬁable cause of ACS in this study was
pulmonary fat embolism (PFE).
4 Originally described in trauma
victims, PFE is a frequent complication of bone fracture and may
progress to involve the lungs and CNS with multiorgan failure and
10,11 The NACSS made the diagnosis by using BAL to
identify fat-laden macrophages; less-invasive means of making the
diagnosis are not well established, and even the speciﬁcity of
fat-laden macrophages in BAL specimens has been questioned.
