It is estimated that by 2030, 7 out of the top 10 countries for diabetes populations will be based in Asia. The main contributors to the growing number of diabetics will be India and China. China is said to have an estimated 92.4 million adults with diabetes as compared to 50.8 million people in India, according to the International Diabetes Federation based in Brussels. According to Dr Yang Wenying, head of endocrinology at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing, a combination of increasingly elderly populations, rapid urbanization, and nutritional changes along with lack of physical activity are the main reasons behind this growing epidemic of diabetes in China. In India too, growth in income levels and development has led to an increasing sedentary lifestyle and increasing diabetes prevalence at 3.7% of the population and 1.4 million new cases per year, 90% of which have Type 2 diabetes.
