The number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. The global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age was 8.5% in 2014
Almost half of all deaths attributed to high blood glucose occur before the age of 70 years. It is also a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation.
Among the Indian States, Tamil Nadu had the highest death rate from diabetes
with 53 deaths per 1,00,000 population. Punjab comes next with 44 deaths
followed by Karnataka with 42 death counts. All these counts are significantly
higher than the national average of 23. Sadly, there is a 50% rise in diabetes
deaths across India over the last 11 years and the count is still rising and
demands an immediate attention.
Diabetes prevalence has been rising more rapidly in developing countries with majority of population having middle and low-income. It is spreading to those who can least afford to pay for its management. Because the disease is expensive, the situation because worse. In India, it is estimated that one has to pay more
than Rs. 40 on its treatment per day.
