Lifetime risk of diabetes in metropolitan cities

Date: 01 December 2020 Tags: Reports & Indices
  • A new research has shown that more than half of men (55%) and some two thirds (65%) of women aged 20 years in India will likely develop diabetes, with most of those cases (around 95%) likely to be type 2 diabetes (T2D).
  • Researchers noted that India already has a significant health burden caused by diabetes and estimates suggest 77 million adults have diabetes and this number is expected to almost double to 134 million by 2045.
  • The new estimates from India are much closer to estimates of lifetime risk of 20-year-olds among the black and Hispanic populations in the U.S. (above 50%), groups considered at a higher risk of developing diabetes than the general population.
  • In India — urbanisation, decreasing diet quality, and decreased levels of physical activity — are all contributing to this hidden epidemic.
