Projection of the Prevalence of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
The epidemiology of chronic diseases has attracted more and more interest in recent years. There are two main reasons for this interest. First, advances in medical science have, with just a few important exceptions, conquered communicable infectious diseases which were the main source of morbidity and mortality in the past. Secondly, the process of demographic transition culminates in the industrially developed countries where the earlier high birth and death rates have been replaced by low ones, and the proportion of inhabitants in the older age groups, which are the most afflicted by chronic and degenerative diseases, continues to rise to an all time high.
