The need for diabetes innovation is pressing; diabetes has become a huge issue in the developed world, and research shows that if nothing is done, the number of diagnosed diabetics worldwide could be up to 300 million by 2025.

Each year, in excess of $130 billion U.S. is poured into diabetes research and treatment, resulting in breakthroughs such as the diabetes innovations featured in the cluster below.

As only 10% of diabetes cases are type 1, 90% could be preventable. 

“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.”

Escalating obesity rates are closely related, both relating to a lack of nutritional knowledge, ignorance for health and the enticing influence of the junk food that is hyped in media.

Cycle through the cluster to see some of the most interesting diabetes innovations featured on Trend Hunter, from color changing tattoos to monitor glucose levels to diabetes management games from Nintendo.
