Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia). Diabetes is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels. According to Diabetes Atlas there are 415 million adults have diabetes. This means one person in every eleven has diabetes. It is estimated the number of diabetic will reach 640 million by 2040. There are 6.3 million adults have diabetes in Turkey according to 2015 data. At one in every seven people, Turkey has the highest diabetes prevalence in Europe. By 2035, more people with diabetes will live in Turkey than in any other country in Europe. Moreover, HbA1c – a measurement of blood sugar and diabetes control – is considerably higher among Turkish people with diabetes than in other European countries.
