Diabetes statistics are scary
It has been told in this study that the information of Global Burden of Disease of the year 2021 has been used in the study. In which researchers examined the incidence, causes and deaths of diabetes in 204 countries from 1990 to 2021. On this basis, the figure of diabetic patient has been estimated till 2050. The UN has also told in an estimate that by 2050, some of the population of the world may be around 9.8 billion i.e. more than 980 crores. Then every 7th person can be in the grip of diabetes.
Half of the population of these countries will be in the grip of diabetes
Dr. Stephen Lawrence, a member of the research team at Britain's Warwick University, said that accurate modeling studies have been used in this study. So it is not just a guess. In 2021, 529 million population of the whole world was suffering from diabetes, which was 6.1 percent of the total population of the world. Now by 2050 in 204 countries, this figure can be more than 43.6%. In this, age-related diabetes is spreading fastest in Qatar. In 2021, 76% of people aged 75-79 were in the grip of diabetes. Now it can increase even more.
why diabetes is on the rise
Obesity is the biggest reason for increasing diabetes. After this comes the number of food and bad lifestyle. Professor Lawrence says that this risk is increasing by eating more hypercaloric foods. Our genes cannot deal with these things. That's why food and lifestyle should be improved.
