A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step – so the saying goes. The diabetes journey begins with the diagnosis and to get that journey started in the right direction it has to be the right diagnosis, not only whether or not it’s diabetes but also exactly what type of diabetes is it? As articles in this Issue make plain, the wrong diagnosis will get that journey off to a very bad start.

Diabetes is the unresolved development issue of the 21st century
The newly released 6th edition of IDF Diabetes Atlas reports that the number of people living with diabetes rose cataclysmically to 382 million in 2013. Our evidence shows that diabetes prevalence will skyrocket by 2035. By that time, nearly 600 million people will live with diabetes, and approximately 470 million will have impaired glucose tolerance. Put another way – 1 in every 8 people worldwide, 1 billion people, will live with or be at risk of diabetes.

Several different battles are illustrated by the contents of this Issue of Diabetes Voice. The first of these is the battle individuals face to maintain any kind of diabetes self-care in the wake of cataclysmic natural disasters – hurricanes, typhoons, inundations, earthquakes, forest fires or whatever form these disasters may take.

As the authentic global voice of diabetes, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has achieved much in fixing diabetes firmly on the international political agenda. Diabetes and other Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) are now recognised as leading threats to development in the 21st century and to the success of the United Nations’ ambition to eradicate poverty.
