Going by the numbers, 79 million people with type 2 diabetes will need insulin in the coming 12 years, while the insulin required to treat type 2 diabetes is expected to increase by around 20%.

People with type 2 diabetes may be treated with insulin if they have uncontrolled blood glucose levels, and have not been able to lower their glucose levels using metformin or other medication.

The untreated person affected by diabetes were affected by the deterioration of heart, kidney, eyes, nerves, blood vessels, stroke, and the major complication is that these high sugar level patients can not undergo surgery because the healing of a surgical wound is slow and complicated. They then analysed 14 studies to project more than 60% of the global type 2 diabetes population for HbA1c, treatment and weight data.

Almost 98 million people in India may have type 2 diabetes by 2030, according to a study, which found that the number of adults with the disease worldwide is expected rise by over a fifth.

"The number of adults with Type-2 diabetes is expected to rise over the next 12 years due to ageing, urbanisation, and associated changes in diet and physical activity".

The study, which was led by Stanford University's Sanjay Basu, found that health care providers may see a 20-percent global increase in demand for insulin in order to effectively treat type 2 diabetics.

As people around the globe continue to get fatter, diabetes rates will continue to rise and insulin supplies will be in short supply, a new study warns.

A new study shows that worldwide, the number of adults with type 2 diabetes is expected rise by more than a fifth from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million in 2030.

The study underscores the significance of handling hindrances in the insulin market, especially in Africa. Past research has found that insulin cost nearly tripled between 2002 and 2013, underscoring the affordability issue.

Insulin is essential for all people with Type-1 diabetes and some people with Type-2 diabetes to reduce the risk of complications such as blindness, amputation, kidney failure, and stroke.

Sanjay Basu also added that governments should begin effective initiatives to make insulin affordable for patients all across the world. The amount of people using insulin was part of this projection.
