3. Epidemiology

Based on a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2017, it is estimated that 94% of the population (30.3 million individuals) as of 2015 had diabetes while an additional 84.1 million adults had prediabetes. In non-Western countries where the diet contains fewer calories and higher caloric expenditure, T2DM is less common. However, these numbers are increasing as more people adopt Western lifestyles. The International Diabetes Federation has predicted that from 2011 to 2030, the number of diabetics will increase from 366 million to 552 million. The top 10 countries with the most number of diabetics are India, China, United States, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, Russia, Brazil, Italy, and Bangladesh.
