Lahore: Type 2 diabetes is a disease that leads to various medical complications, including heart diseases, kidney diseases, and other conditions. A new study has revealed that by 2050, the number of adults affected by type 2 diabetes worldwide will double.
The study indicates that in 2021, 529 million individuals were affected by diabetes, and by 2050, this number will rise to 1.3 billion. There is no possibility of a decrease in the rate of diabetes prevalence in any country in the next 30 years. The research published in The Lancet suggests that the rapid increase in diabetes is a consequence of the rapid increase in obesity rates worldwide.
Experts have stated that diabetes is currently one of the major medical risks, and during the next three decades, this disease will spread rapidly among individuals of all ages in every country. According to estimates, the world population will reach 9.8 billion by 2050, meaning that one in every eight individuals will be a diabetic patient.
Researchers have emphasized that it is possible to prevent type 2 diabetes, and if the disease is diagnosed early, it can even be reversed in some cases. However, all evidence suggests that the rate of diabetes prevalence is increasing, with obesity being the primary cause.

The disease of diabetes is now even more rapidly affecting individuals under the age of 40. It is important to note that in type 2 diabetes, the pancreas does not produce insulin in the right quantity or the body does not utilize insulin properly, leading to a dangerous increase in blood sugar levels and causing damage to organs over time.
