One in Ten People Could Suffer from Diabetes by 2035, Reveals Report

Nov 15th 2013, 09:10

One in ten people globally will have diabetes by 2035, reveals new report.

To highlight World Diabetes Day which takes place each year on Nov. 14, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) released its sixth edition of the Diabetes Atlas.

The report estimates how many adults between the ages of 20 to 79 will be affected by the disease in the future.

By the end of this year, the IDF estimates that 382 million people will have diabetes around the world, CBS News reported.

By 2035, that number will skyrocket to 592 million. For comparison, about 285 million people had the disease just four years ago.

Eighty percent of people with the disease live in low- and middle-income countries, and most of them are between 40 and 59 years old.

The organization also said that one person dies from diabetes every six seconds, or about 5.1 million deaths annually.

The IDF estimates that the percentage of U.S. residents affected by diabetes will increase to 11.6 by 2035, which will be 29.7 million people.

About 8.3 percent of the U.S. population had a form of diabetes in 2011, according to the American Diabetes Association.
