Epidemiology of Diabetes

Epidemiology is the study and analysis of incidence, distribution, and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to health. As per the statistics in 2017, an estimated 8.8 % of the global adult population were living with diabetes. The prevalence of diabetes has nearly doubled since 1980, rising from 4.7% to 8.8% in the global adult population. This reflects an increase in associated risk factors such as overweight or obese. Over the past decade, diabetes prevalence has risen faster in developing countries than in developed countries. Type 2 diabetes mellitus occurs throughout the world, but is more common in the more developed countries. The disease burden related to diabetes is high and rises in every country. The premature morbidity, mortality, reduced life expectancy and financial and other costs of diabetes make it an important public health condition.
