The twin epidemics

Type 2 Diabetes and obesity have become modern day epidemics that are growing at an alarming rate around the world.

According to the International Diabetes Federation more than 250 million people are living with diabetes and by 2025 it is expected that this figure will increase to over 380 million people.

Each year more than 3.8 million people die from diabetes-related causes. This is the equivalent of one death every 10 seconds.

High rates of obesity, sedentary lifestyles and stress are major contributory factors in the development of Type 2 Diabetes.

According to the International Association for the Study of Obesity the prevalence of adult obesity has risen three fold in many countries since the 1980s.

There are around 525 million obese (BMI 30+) adults worldwide and 1.5 billion adults who are overweight (BMI 25+).

Around 700 million adults are expected to be obese by 2015.

Obesity is a major contributory factor in the development of Type 2 Diabetes.
