Scope and Importance
Diabetes is increasing in epidemic proportions worldwide. In India alone, more than 68 million people have Diabetes. The need of the hour is to empower Health Care providers with Basic and Advanced Diabetes Care expertise for better management of Diabetes and its associated complications. Diabetes prevalence has been rising more rapidly in middle- and low-income countries and is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation.
Number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. Among adults, prevalence of diabetes, over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014. In 2015, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes. Another 2.2 million deaths were attributable to high blood glucose in 2012. Almost half of all deaths attributable to high blood glucose occur before the age of 70 years. WHO projects that diabetes will be the seventh leading cause of death in 2030.
Approximately 415 million adults have diabetes; by 2040 this will rise to 642 million. Diabetes caused 5 million deaths in 2015; every six seconds a person dies from diabetes and More than 20.9 million live births were affected by diabetes during pregnancy in 2015 – 1 in 7 births. Diabetes is currently the fifth most common reason for death in the world. Around 1 in 8 people between 20 and 79 years old have their death attributed to diabetes and it is expected to rise. It is currently estimated that around 10% of the NHS yearly budget is contributed to the treatment of diabetes. This equates to nine billion a year or rather, £173 million a week.
