Six percent of the world's population has diabetes - WHO


The World Health Organization, WHO says 6% of the world's population has diabetes.

 

The global health monitoring body in a statement released few minutes ago, to mark this year's World Diabetes Day, explained that that the current number of people suffering from diabetes, is four times what it was in 1980.

 

According to WHO, the number is increasing most rapidly in low and middle income countries, which are the least well - equipped to provide treatment.

 

"WHO estimates that 6% of the population has #diabetes. The total number today is 4 times what it was in 1980.

What’s more, the number is most rapidly in low-and-middle-income countries, which are the least well-equipped to provide treatment," the statement noted.
