Diabetes mellitus is considered one of the most serious diseases. Diabetes is a chronic condition that impairs a person physically as well as emotionally. The major issue with the diabetics is that they canâ�?�?t extract energy from the food necessary for their daily activities. Instead of being absorbed into the cells, the glucose remains in blood and remains as wasted energy. This blood rich is glucose is the cause of number of diseases associated with diabetes mellitus whether these be tumour, tuberculosis, heart stroke, and/ or CNS related issues. Diabetes has been found to be caused by either an underproduction of insulin or the resistance of this hormone which is itself a peptide hormone associated with zinc metal. Without zinc, insulin cannot perform its physiological role. The study represents detailed analyses of effect of diabetes mellitus on the concentration of zinc as well as trace and macro-metals found in blood, hair, nails and urines of diabetic patients. The study was carried out to create a link between the altered concentrations of metals and the diseases associated with the complications of diabetes mellitus.
