Global economic impact of diabetes revealed in new study

last modified Jul 27, 2015 10:50 AM
Type 2 diabetes reduces people’s employment chances and wages around the world – according to a new study from the University of East Anglia, supported by CEDAR.
Researchers found a large cost burden of diabetes not only in high-income countries, but also in low and middle-income countries – where people with diabetes and their families face high costs for treatment. The research team looked at data from 109 studies in the largest and most up-to-date global review of the economic impact of diabetes. The findings underline the need for continued policy attention to diabetes prevention in high income and developing countries.
