Insulin shortage to ail 40 million patients diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes

Around 40 million patients that suffer from Type-2 diabetes might not get access to this drug unless there is a significant improvement in terms of access. The number of patients being diagnosed with this disease is reaching its highest marks and is linked with an obesity epidemic. However, not everyone that has been diagnosed with this disease requires insulin.

The study reported in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology reveals that close to 79 million patients diagnosed with the Type-2 diabetes shall require insulin by the year 2030. However, half of this population shall lack access to this drug. Currently, 33 million patients all over the world have limited or no access to this drug.

These estimations point out to the fact that the current production level for insulin is comparatively inadequate when compared to the rising counts of patients. This is especially true in continents such as Asia and Africa. Despite the commitment laid down by the UN in order to treat the non-communicable diseases while ensuring a universal access for drugs such as insulin, a major faction of the globe is running out of it. The head count for patients has been estimated to increase over the course of upcoming 12 years which requires proper monitoring and surplus production of insulin to meet the rising demands.
