Despite the morbidity and mortality linked to retinopathy, neuropathy, and nephropathy, cardiovascular infection remains the main cause of death. Lifestyle disorders are ice-berg diseases that are spreading over the globe at an exponential rate. It is now also the alarming illness of younger age, while once being viewed of as a disease of middle age and older.
