In 2007 the International Diabetes Federation estimated that worldwide approximately 246 million people or 5.9% of the 20 - 79 age group had diabetes. This estimate is expected to increase to 380 million or 7.1% of the population by 2025. About 80% of these diabetics live in developing countries. Type 2 diabetes accounts for 85 - 90% of cases in developed countries, and an even higher proportion in developing countries.
