Eleuthera, Bahamas – According to the International Diabetes Federation, one person in the world dies every six seconds from complications due to diabetes. In 2013, diabetes accounted for more than 1.5 million deaths worldwide. There are currently over 382 million people are affected with diabetes. This number is hiking at an alarming rate and is expected to increase to nearly 600 million by 2035.
A Communicable Disease Prevalence Study conducted in The Bahamas in 2005 recorded 23,000 pre-diabetic Bahamians and 32,000 diabetics. Just six short years later (2011), a similar survey indicated that the number of cases had increased exponentially, sighting nearly 28,000 pre-diabetic Bahamians and over 62,000 diabetics. These were only a few of the startling statistics presented by Dr. Graham Cates, of Family Medicine Center.
