Solving global diabetes challenge through innovation
The world is experiencing a diabetes epidemy! There are over 420 million diabetics in the world. At least another 400 millions are at the danger zone (pre-diabetes). According to WHO, by 2030, 18% of the world’s population will have diabetes. Diabetes has become the 7th most life-threatening disease after heart-disease and cancer. Currently, diabetes costs the society around world $847 billions yearly and has thus become one of the biggest health challenges in the modern time. 90% of the diabetics are type 2 diabetes (TDM).
Diabetes care has traditionally been focused on treatment when people already are sick. It is too late and too expensive to treat once the conditions have developed into a disease. We must start with prevention! In order to do that, we need to provide people with powerful solutions that are effective, easy to comply and affordable.
The problem with the current available solutions for diabetes prevention such as medicines and other methods have drawbacks. Medicines have side effects. Other methods such as life-style changes and exercise have low patient compliance. The consequence of these is uncontrollable diabetes 2 occurrence and diabetes complications such as heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputation due to badly controlled blood sugar. These diseases cost the societies billions of dollars and enormous suffering at the patients.
