Type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable, but remains responsible for millions of deaths and many more disabling and life-threatening complications.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 95% of diabetes casesworldwide. It often develops over many years, with the result that a great number of people remain undiagnosed even as their bodies are being damaged by excess blood glucose. Type 2 diabetes and its complications are largely preventable, but remain responsible for millions of premature deaths and disabilities, especially in the developing world.
