European Diabetes Leadership Forum - April 25 & 26 2012 in Copenhagen
Worldwide, there are already 366 million people with diabetes – 8.5% of the adult population – and, by 2030, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates that 552 million people – 8.9% of the adult population will be affected. Diabetes is also on the rise in Europe; currently, 35.3 million adults have diabetes and this is expected to increase to 43.5 million in 2030. In addition to those with diabetes, 42.2 million people have impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), indicative of an increased risk of developing diabetes.
