[Comment] Reducing global diabetes burden by implementing solutions and identifying gaps: a Lancet Commission

Diabetes is a silent killer that affects men and women, young and old, rich and poor. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2016, one in 11 adults has diabetes worldwide, one person dies with diabetes every 6 s, and US$1 in $9 of health-care expenditure is spent on diabetes and its complications.1 More than 80% of people with diabetes live in low-income and middle-income countries, and most of them have type 2 diabetes.1 In many of these places, the rising prevalence in both type 12 and type 2 diabetes highlights the potential effects of rapid urbanisation on health and disease development, especially among individuals with genetic predisposition and underserved communities.
