Advocating an Integrated Approach to the Global Diabetes Epidemic

The non-communicable disease of diabetes has reached epidemic proportions, and it knows no geographic boundaries. It`s time to take a sombre look at the consequences of letting the worldwide diabetes epidemic continue to progress, and decide how we, as a globally unified body of health professionals and health agencies, wish to proceed, points out Dr J. Rick Turner of Quintiles. He advocates for the adoption of an integrated approach to addressing the global diabetes epidemic, because it offers the most promise for the prevention of future cases of diabetes, and for the treatment of patients who currently have diabetes.
