Western Pacific

Diabetes report 2010 — 2045

The IDF Western Pacific (WP) Region consists of 36 countries. For this edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas, 60 data sources from 28 countries were used to generate estimates of diabetes in adults aged 20–79 years. Estimates for Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Republic of Korea and Thailand were based on studies conducted within the past five years. Other studies were performed between 1990 and 2013. Eleven countries in the Region had national studies based on oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT). Diabetes prevalence figures for other countries may be underestimated.
