 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is considered today as one of the biggest public health problems. It is estimated that in 2030 approximately 366 million people will have some type of DM [1]. Type 2 DM (DM2) is caused mainly by insulin resistance, defined by Hunter and Garvey [2] as “a clinical condition in which a normal or elevated concentration of insulin is observed that produces an attenuated biological response”, manifesting itself 10 - 20 years before the symptoms of DM2 are observed.
