 Millions With Type 2 Diabetes Go Undiagnosed
A recent report by the World Health Organization reveals a dangerous trend among millions of people in the developed and developing nations of the world- Type 2 diabetes.

Akin to a ticking time bomb, many millions are unaware that they are victims of diabetes and therefore go untreated.

Untreated diabetes poses grave risk to health, which can also be life threatening in certain cases.

Dr. Stephen Lim of The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, said, "Too many people are not being properly diagnosed with diabetes and related cardiovascular risk factors. Those who are diagnosed aren't being effectively treated."
