The roles of microorganisms in the pathogenesis and prevalence of diabetes: a review
African Journal of Diabetes Medicine
Diabetes is now one of the most common noncommunicable diseases globally. Complications from diabetes reduce life expectancy and caused enormous health costs globally. Diabetes is certainly one of the most challenging health problems in the 21st century. Fortunately, many countries have committed to halting the rise in diabetes, reducing diabetes-related premature mortality, and improving access to essential diabetes medicines and basic technologies. However, this can only be achieved through in-depth understanding of the causes and pathogenesis of the disease. Although genetic and environmental factors, and microbial infections have been implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetes, there are diverse opinions on their mechanisms. The aim of this structured review is to summaries mechanisms by which microorganisms may aid in the pathogenesis of diabetes
