Diabetes Mellitus is a growing public health problem recent year. Diabetes has two main kinds: type 1 and type 2. Accumulating evidence suggests that genetic predisposition plays an important role in type 1 diabetes. This may be one reason that cause the difference between China and U.S. Within diabetes patients, more than 90% have type 2 diabetes. However, the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in China and United States of America is quite different, with 11.6% and 13% in two countries, respectively. Two countries with completely different cultures and histories have such slight differences in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes. Based on this fact, this paper will introduce the pathogenesis of diabetes and how it differs between the two countries.
