The concept of stress has been studied over many decades. An individual can research various forms of stress such as psychological, physiological, emotional, acute, and chronic. Other terms related to stress are daily hassles and oxidative. Holmes & Rahe [1] and Selye [2] reported that stress is a force or, are forces that place demands on an individual and as a result a series of responses occur. Selye [2] also reported that the forces, also termed stressors, evoke positive or negative responses in an individual. The aim of this manuscript is to describe the association between oxidative stress and diabetes mellitus. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disorder related to impairment in glucose metabolism. In 2013 a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicated that globally, the number of people with chronic diseases such as diabetes was increased [3]. The world-wide mortality rate for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases (i.e. cardiovascular and renal diseases) has been estimated to be greater than 60% [4]. Predictions related to the global prevalence of diabetes are that by the year 2030 over 400 million people will have diabetes. He et al. [5] reported an association between chronic diseases, inflammation, and stress, more namely, oxidative stress.
