This study mainly addresses the development of a new numerical approach to depict the number of patients. Based on the discrete dataset of the numbers of national and international population with diabetes Mellitus from 1980 through 2015, we predict the number of future patients (in 2040) by using linear and nonlinear exponential regression curves obtained through the Least Square methods. Moreover, in order to emphasize the strong influence of more recent year data, we suggest the weighted Least Square Method whose weight is developed based on the standard logistic function. Finally we analyze the each results and seek for the further work.
