More than 8.5% of the global adult population suffers from diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic hyperglycemia primarily associated with excess weight and a sedentary lifestyle. This disease is spreading steadily throughout the world’s population and causes serious complications for the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys and nerves. Prevention is possible at the prediabetic stage (prediabetes is reversible), and is based today on lifestyle and dietary measures. Its treatment requires a lifestyle change in combination with medication, which may increase as the disease evolves.
