98 million Indians will suffer from diabetes by 2030, says Study

The most recent study out of Stanford used data from multiple past studies to model the anticipated amount of insulin that will be needed for type 2 diabetes from now until 2030.

Researchers from Stanford University projected type 2 diabetes numbers in 221 countries from 2018 and 2030, with half of that group living in China, India and the United States.

"These estimates suggest that current levels of insulin access are highly inadequate compared to projected need, particularly in Africa and Asia, and more efforts should be devoted to overcoming this looming health challenge", Basu said in a statement.

The rate at which people are developing diabetes has experts anxious that we will not be able to keep up with the demand for insulin. Half of these people would come from China (130 million), India (98 million), and the U.S. (32 million).

The vast majority have Type 2 diabetes, the kind linked to obesity and lack of exercise, and cases are spreading particularly rapidly in the developing world as people adopt more Western, urban lifestyles. Researchers noted that the usage of methyldopa is capable of preventing up to 60 percent of type 1 diabetes among people who are at the risk of the disease.

People with type 2 diabetes may be treated with insulin if they have uncontrolled blood glucose levels, and have not been able to lower their glucose levels using metformin or other medication. The study found that the rise in the number of people affected by the disease is likely to rise by around 20 per cent over the people affected now.

A study published in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, says access to insulin will fall well short of demand.

Insulin is very much essential for patients to combat type 2 diabetes and it will help the diabetic victims to reduce complications associated with this disease like kidney failure, blindness and stroke. Insulin treatment is expensive and the market is now dominated by three manufacturers, according to the study. There will be an increase in the number of adults with Type 2 diabetes in the coming 12 years due to ageing, urbanization, and related substitutes in diet and physical activity. "Unless governments begin initiatives to make insulin available and affordable, then its use is always going to be far from optimal".
