The latest edition of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the Diabetes Atlas displays the diabetes count in adults as nearly 463 million, with an additional 1.1 million children and adolescents having type 1 diabetes. The year 2010 projected global diabetes numbers to be 438 million in 2025. With a year still to go, that prediction has already been surpassed by 25 million [1].
