Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus occurs when the effect of insulin in absorbing blood glucose diminishes

These reports includes 20-year forecasts of prevalent type 1 and type 2 diabetes cases segmented by age and gender, and drug-treated diabetes, segmented by treatment type.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of chronic endocrine disorders characterized by yperglycemia due to insufficient levels of insulin, a hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar. The shortage of insulin is caused by either diminished insulin secretion, as in type 1
diabetes, or by diminished insulin effect, as in type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form, accounting for approximately 90­–95% of all diabetes cases (Chevreul et al., 2014; Geiss et al., 2014; IDF, 2017). Globally, prevalence has increased in
recent decades, and has been paralleled by the rate of increase observed in obesity prevalence, which represents a major risk factor.

    mHealth and Research in Oncology

    The World Health Organization defines mobile health (mHealth) as a “medical and public health practice supported by mobile devices, such as mobile phones, patient monitoring devices, personal digital assistants, and other wireless devices”. In the last decade, the health sector has seen a substantial rise in the number of mHealth apps, many of which are designed to assist users in weight reduction and diabetes management. In 2016, there were 79,000 apps available in the Health & Fitness category in the Google and Apple stores. However, the implementation of mHealth in oncology is lagging, and there are comparatively few available apps. There is a need for the development of more mHealth apps in oncology settings considering the increasing disease burden and potential clinical benefit.
