Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body's systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels.

Key facts:
  • - 346 million people worldwide have diabetes.
  • - In 2004, an estimated 3.4 million people died from consequences of high blood sugar.
  • - More than 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
  • - WHO projects that diabetes deaths will double between 2005 and 2030.
