Before the isolation of insulin in the 1920s, most patients died within a short time after onset. Untreated diabetes leads to ketoacidosis, the accumulation of ketones (products of fat breakdown) and acid in the blood. Continued buildup of the toxic products of disordered carbohydrate and fat metabolism result in nausea and vomiting, and eventually the patient goes into a diabetic coma.

Treatment aimed at controlling diabetes is highly successful. All patients are put on restrictive diets designed to help them reach and maintain normal body weight and to limit their intake of sugars and fats. Frequently they are encouraged to exercise regularly, which enhances the movement of glucose into muscle cells and blunts the rise in blood glucose that follows carbohydrate ingestion. Diabetics who are unable to produce insulin in their bodies receive regular injections of the hormone, often customized according to their individual and variable requirements. In addition to conventional beef-pork insulin¡Xwhich is the pancreatic extract of cattles and pigs¡Xhuman insulin, based on recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) technology, became available for use in the 1980s.

Research into other areas of insulin delivery include pancreas transplantation and implantable mechanical insulin infusion systems. Medications in the form of oral hypoglycemic (blood-sugar-lowering) agents are also available. The objective of all forms of treatment of diabetes is to keep the level of blood sugar within normal limits and thus reduce the complications, primarily cardiovascular, that account for most diabetes-related deaths. Other serious complications include a condition known as diabetic retinopathy (retinal changes that can lead to blindness), kidney disease, and frequent infection.
