[Editorial] Untangling the complications of diabetes

The Global Burden of Disease 2016 study reported diabetes to be the twelfth leading cause of disability globally and attributed nearly 1·5 million deaths to diabetes worldwide. Other studies estimate that the number of people living with diabetes today ranges from 415 million to 425 million, with a projection of as many as 700 million people living with the disease by 2025. Ageing populations, increasing urbanisation, and widening social inequalities are all contributing factors to the rapid rise in diabetes prevalence seen over the past 40 years.
