LONDON, April 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the International Diabetes Federation the adult population with diabetes in 2010 is likely to reach 55.2 million in Europe and around 285 million people worldwide. Estimates by the World Health Organisation (WHO) also record the global increase of diabetes at an alarming rate: By 2030 the number of people with diabetes could rise to 438 million around the world.


Healthcare systems across the globe have recognized the epidemic nature of this chronic disease and are encouraging new technologies to counter its adverse effects. While the national prevalence rate of diabetes varies from country to country in Europe, the International Diabetes Federation indicates, that the healthcare expenditure on diabetes in 2010 is likely to be US$ 106 billion in Europe alone, representing 28 per cent of the global expenditure. Continuous glucose monitoring techniques, if made affordable to the patient, would certainly help a large portion of the diabetic population.
