Diabetes: a major global health issue

Diabetes (Diabetes Mellitus) is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by high levels of glucose in the blood due to deficient production of insulin by the pancreas or ineffective tissue responses to insulin.

Diabetes is associated with an increased risk of a range of health complications (including cardiovascular diseases, kidney failure, retinopathy, and peripheral neuropathy). It is a major financial burden for healthcare systems and caused around 6.7 million deaths worldwide in 2021. Early diagnosis, rapid treatment, and access to ongoing care and management support are essential for preventing complications, and improving the outcomes and quality of life of patients.
