Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases around the world. If the statistics from the World Health Organisation are to be considered, it is believed that the rate of diabetes has increased from 108 million in 1980 to over 422 million in 2014. The number is on a constant rise and our lifestyle is definitely one of the primary prevalent reasons behind the same. The stats also suggest that the problem is the most evident in some middle as well as the low-income countries 

In a recently conducted study, it was found that a form of targeted ultrasound could very well be an effective as well as a non-invasive way to boost the levels of insulin in the body, especially beneficial for the people suffering from type-2 diabetes. With this type of diabetes affecting over 100 million people across the world, it is not surprising that finding more modes of treatment is the need of the hour. 

The levels of insulin are always inconsistent with people suffering from diabetes. This is the primary reason why after a certain point of time, the body becomes less sensitive to the production of insulin, thus causing insulin resistance in the body.
