Diabetes report 2010 — 2045

The IDF Europe (EUR) Region consists of 57 countries with diverse populations, ethnically and economically. A total of 73 data sources from 39 countries were used to generate diabetes estimates among adults in the Region. Estimates for 12 countries (Georgia, Germany, Greenland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Norway, Romania, Russian Federation and Uzbekistan) were based on studies conducted within the past five years. Diabetes prevalence figures for the remaining countries may be underestimated due to lack of recent data or data that, although available for all ages, is not readily accessible by age and sex.
