Type 2 Diabetes Patients Prone to Insulin Shortage


A recent study from Stanford University advise that not less than 40 million people with Type 2 Diabetes disease won’t have access to insulin for treatment by 2030.

Researchers simulated burden of the disease from 2018 to 2030 across 221 countries making use of data from the International Diabetes Federation and 14 studies which stand for more than 60 percent of the global type 2 diabetes population.

The study indicate that the amount of people with Type 2 diabetes worldwide will grow from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million in 2030.

The researchers predicted that nearly 79 million people will need insulin to contain their condition, while only 38 million will be able to get it if access to insulin stays the same.

The lead author of the study, Sanjay Basu said “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,”.

He said“The number of adults with type 2 diabetes is expected to rise over the next 12 years due to ageing, urbanisation, and associated changes in diet and physical activity,” he said, urging more governmental actions.

Sanjay added “Unless governments begin initiatives to make insulin available and affordable, then its use is always going to be far from optimal.”
