According to the WHO, since 1980, the number of diabetes patients has increased four times
According to experts of the world Health Organization, since 1980, the number of diabetes patients has increased four times, and at present about four hundred million people suffer from this serious disease.

The specialists also note that despite the various national programmes for treatment, every ten years, the number of patients with diabetes increased by almost half. It would seem that now is quite effective treatment, and the number of patients should be reduced, but this does not happen, the situation is reversed.

Also according to experts WHO, in many countries of the world is traced instant dissemination of the "epidemic" of diabetes, which is very dangerous and suggests that this disease is not protected by any man, all are under a kind of threat. If in 1980 there were only 108 million people with diabetes, they already in 2014 is 422 million.

It is worth mentioning that diabetes is a very serious disease that can lead to kidney disease, blindness, heart attack, cancer, stroke, etc. Experts say that for diabetes we need to solve the problems of unhealthy diet and lifestyle, that we must start with this and then we can talk about reducing numbers.
