Present and future challenges in Type 2 diabetes. Summer 11

According to the International Diabetes Federation, more than 285 million people (6.4% of the world population) are currently estimated to suffer from diabetes, a figure which is expected to rise to 438 million (7.8%) by 2030. Moreover, the World Health Organisation calculates that nearly three million deaths worldwide are attributable to diabetes each year; by 2030, this figure is expected to double. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) accounts for approximately 90% of the cases of diabetes. These astonishing statistics help to illustrate the epidemic prevalence of T2DM, and the major need for effective diagnostic, intervention and disease management strategies.
