An effort has been made in this review to outline the origin of diabetes as a serious disease. A large number of studies are going on in order to understand the cause of this disease, both environmental as well as genetic factors have been found to be involved. We have tried to throw some light on inflammation in diabetes with special emphasis on interleukins and adipocytokines. Recently the involvements of cytokines and adipocytokines have been extensively studied and have been found to play an extremely important role in the manifestation of diabetes and its associated complications.
