Number of diabetics worldwide

Diabetes is a condition that causes the pancreas to stop (or severely reduce) the production of insulin, a hormone needed to regulate blood sugar levels. Many people worldwide live with diabetes: in 2019, a total of about 460 million people had diabetes. This number is projected to reach an estimated 700 million by the year 2045.
