Executive Summary

The number of diabetics is set to almost double by 2010, from 123 million to 220 million - or almost 3% of the world's population, predicts the British Diabetic Association. It says 61% of sufferers will be in Asia, with diabetes becoming two or three times more common in both Asia and Africa. Diabetes is the fourth or fifth leading cause of death in developed countries, with complications, such as coronary artery and peripheral vascular disease, contributing to huge rises in healthcare costs.
