The International Diabetes & Obesity Summit-2016 is being organized by Subhadra Healthcare to deliberate and envision solutions that reflect our commitment to fighting Lifestyle and chronic disorders. We cordially invite you to attend the “International Diabetes and Obesity Summit-2016” from 18th-20th October 2017 in Dubai. Subhadra Healthcare was created with a vision to bring the best healthcare professionals and practices in the field of medicine from across the globe. Diabetes and obesity are the biggest public health challenge of the 21st century. According to the Center for Disease Control, we are eating ourselves into a diabetes epidemic. “According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), worldwide 80 per cent of people with Type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese at the time of diagnosis. The International Diabetes Federation states that diabetes affects at least 285 million people worldwide, and that number is expected to reach 438 million by the year 2030, with two-thirds of all diabetes cases occurring in low- to middle-income countries. The number of adults with impaired glucose tolerance will rise from 344 million in 2010 to an estimated 472 million by 2030. Globally, it was estimated that diabetes accounted for 12% of health expenditures in 2010, or at least $376 billion—a figure expected to hit $490 billion in 2030.
Its increasing prevalence and associated health complications threaten to reverse economic gains in developing countries. With limited infrastructures for diabetes care, many countries are ill-equipped to manage this epidemic. The Lancet, reported a 45 percent rise in the prevalence of diabetes worldwide from 1990 to 2013. Nearly all the rise was in Type 2, which is usually related to obesity and is the most common form of the disease. A major shift is underway in the developing world, in which deaths from communicable diseases like malaria and tuberculosis have declined sharply, and chronic diseases like cancer and diabetes are on the rise. The pattern is linked to economic improvement and more people living longer, but it has left governments in developing countries scrambling to deal with new and often more expensive ways to treat illnesses. The International Diabetes & Obesity Summit-2016 aims to provide expert insight into recent advances in key areas of Diabetic and obesity disorders, and a balanced perspective on how these may influence guidelines and patient management. The vision behind this global summit is to serve as a unique global platform for Diabeticians, bariatricians, Endocrinologist, Physicians and researchers from world-renowned institutions to share and exchange new clinical studies and advancements in dealing with these lifestyle disorders.
