By 2000, more than 177 million people had been diagnosed with diabetes world wide; by 2025, it could be up to 300 million if nothing is done. 

There are 23.6 million people living with diabetes in the United States alone, a terrifying 8% of the American population. From 2005 to 2007, the rate of diabetes in the U.S. went up by 13.5%.

Only 10% of diabetes cases are type 1.

“There is a growing incidence of type 2 diabetes in children and young people from high-risk populations,” the Canadian Diabetes Association says. “Recent data suggests an American child born in 2000 stands a one in three chance of being diagnosed with diabetes in his or her lifetime.”

It’s very closely related to the rising obesity rates, but is also affected by factors like the aging populations and mainly, poor diet and nutrition.

Below are some of the top innovations featured for diabetics on Trend Hunter. Hopefully the amount of people requiring these innovations reduces in the coming years, but for the time being, let these discoveries bring hope for a healthier future.
