Addressing Growing Cost of Diabetes

As diabetes cases increase worldwide, curbing the personal and financial toll will become a high priority, according to the American Academy of Actuaries. Diabetes is expected to become more common globally, increasing from 8.3% prevalence in adults in 2011, to 9.9% in 2030, according to data from the International Diabetes Federation. At the same time, spending on diabetes varies widely. In 2010, the United States spent $197.8 billion, accounting for 53% of global spending on diabetes, whereas India, with the largest population of diabetics, spent $2.8 billion, less than 1% of the global total. An issue brief developed by the Academy examines the projected future global prevalence and costs associated with diabetes. It also examines efforts in seven different countries (Australia, Canada, Israel, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States) to develop better ways to measure, prevent, treat, and slow the cost of, the disease. The results are cautionary yet hopeful. For more information, visit http://goo.gl/P9v5SC.
