Around 33 million people who require insulin presently have no acquisition to the drug.

Number of adults with type 2 diabetes expected rise by more than a fifth from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million in 2030, with over half living in just three countries-China (130 million), India (98 million), and the United States of America (32 million).

Type 2 diabetes comprises the majority of people with diabetes around the world, and is caused largely due to excess body weight and physical inactivity.

In 1980, around 5% of adults around the globe had diabetes.

As a result, the amount of insulin needed to effectively treat Type-2 diabetes will rise by more than 20 per cent worldwide over the next 12 years. They found that patients who will be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes will increase from 405.6 million in 2018 to 510.8 million in 2030.

If insulin was readily available, there would be over 330,000 fewer disability-adjusted life years, says the study. The study is a warning for the treatment of people suffering from type-2 diabetes in the coming years.

Results showed that the number of adults with type 2 diabetes is expected rise by more than a fifth from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million in 2030, with over half living in just three countries-China (130 million), India (98 million), and the U.S. (32 million). The cost is one of the main reason as the price of insulin had already tripled between 2002 and 2013. This will mean a lot for our ability to bring you news, perspectives and analysis from the ground so that we can make change together.

Dr. Hertzel Gerstein of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, wrote in an accompanying commentary that it was important to estimate and ensure insulin supplies, but added that the forecasts should be treated cautiously as they were based on mathematical models.

The limited production of insulin affects Africa and Asia, in spite of UN's high commitment to treat this non-communicable disease.

"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", said Sanjay Basu, lead author on the study and an assistant professor of medicine at Stanford, in a statement. Unless governments commence inventiveness to make insulin accessible and economical, then its application is going to be far from appropriate.
