Diabetes

up 16%

The International Diabetes

Federation (IDF) has released new

figures showing that 537m adults are

now living with diabetes worldwide -

a rise of 16% (74m) since the previous

IDF estimates in 2019.

These new findings highlight the

alarming growth in the prevalence

of diabetes around the world. More

findings include that the global

prevalence of diabetes has reached

10.5%, with almost half (44.7%) of

adults undiagnosed. By 2045, 783m

adults will be living with diabetes - or

one in eight adults. This would be an

increase of 46%, more than double

the estimated population growth

(20%) over the same period.

More information and supporting

data about the national, regional

and global prevalence of diabetes

can be found in the 10th edition of

the IDF Diabetes Atlas, which will be

launched at the IDF Virtual Congress

2021 on 6 December 2022.

The theme of World Diabetes

Day on 14 November was 'Access

to Diabetes Care'. The IDF call on

national governments to provide the

best possible care for people living

with diabetes and develop policies to

improve diabetes screening and Type

2 diabetes prevention, especially

among young people.

According to reports, Medtronic is in

talks to acquire Israeli insulin brand

Triple Jump for $300m. This follows

Medtronic's earlier 2020 investment

into the start-up, which develops a

small insulin pump patch that will

be included in a future artificial

pancreas platform.

T2 support in Midlands

Co-founders of the Leicester Diabetes Centre,

Professors Kamlesh Kunti and Melanie Davies.

People living with Type 2 diabetes across Leicestershire and Rutland can

now receive free personalised support at home on the NHS. The Leicester

Diabetes Centre (LDC) has partnered with NHS provider Oviva to provide

a new innovative service, which launched at the start of November 2021.

The Oviva Diabetes Support Service is free to access through referral via

GP or Practice Nurse. Delivery by Oviva is remote-first and tailored to

patients' needs, including one-to-one or group pathways, printed materials

or use of Oviva's NHS Digital approved app, and online Learn portal. The

service will also provide support from the award-winning, Leicester-born

self-management diabetes education platform MyDESMOND and the

reintroduction of DESMOND face-to-face groups in 2022.

MyDESMOND already has 21,000 users from across the UK and Ireland

and has been hugely beneficial through the pandemic to not only help

people with Type 2 diabetes to better control their condition but also helps

to improve distress and general wellbeing.

Lucy Diamond, Head of Clinical for Oviva, said: "Oviva is delighted to be

partnering with LDC and MyDESMOND. Together, our programmes offer

gold standard health information, personalised support, and flexibility to

work around people's lives so that we can help more people improve their

health long term. We are proud to see what people are able to achieve

whilst taking part in our programme."
