"Only half the patients will receive the medication needed

Today, around 250,000 people in Norway have diabetes, and according to the Diabetes Association, without knowing it there is a large number of people with type 2 diabetes.

The number of diabetes sufferers is still increasing. In the new study, it is expected that the number of adults with type 2 diabetes will increase from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million by 2030.

However, the same development does not appear in the production of insulin, however, those who have type 1 diabetes and some people with type of diabetes need medication.

This means that if you do not change the practice today, we are facing heavy insulin deficiency.

Researchers discovered in a new study have been published in the prestigious journal The Lancet.

Researchers have kept in mind how the diabetes will develop in the next twelve years, especially how the number of patients will increase, you will need to predict the amount of insulin and if anyone needs it, they will be able to access it.

Half without insulin

By 2030 it is expected that 79 million adults with type 2 diabetes will need insulin. This means a 20 percent increase that will require insulin all over the world.

But if you continue with similar levels of insulin production today, only half of the people who need it, 38 million, will need insulin.

This means that about 40 million people do not need treatment.

– This estimate shows that in the estimated requirement, especially in Africa and Asia, the present levels of insulin availability are extremely insufficient and more efforts should be made to eliminate this dangerous health challenge,
Sanjay Basu, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, USA, said that he is the leader of research in CNN.

According to the study, insulin treatment is expensive and is most affected by insulin defects in Africa, Asia and Oceania.

"Until the authorities take initiative to make insulin more accessible and less costly, its use will always stay away from the best," says Sanjay Basu.


Diabetes Association's Communications Director, T. Spilling told TV2 that American researchers have worrying information.

"We know that we live for a long time and people can live longer with type 2 diabetes, after 10 to 20 years of age, many people with type 2 have to start with insulin. Anyone with diabetes type 1 needs a supply
