World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated globally. Professor Paul Zimmet spoke with Star2 about diabetes in context with WDD:
"If diabetes was a country, it would be the world’s third largest nation (by population) after China and India, says Monash University, Australia, professor of diabetes Professor Paul Zimmet. In 2015, China had an estimated population of around 1.37 billion people and India around 1.26 billion, followed by the United States with just over 320 million people. Meanwhile, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimated that there were 415 million people living with diabetes around the world in the same year."
