ページ情報: 英文 29 Pages
当レポートでは、世界の主要8ヶ国 (8MM：米国、カナダ、フランス、ドイツ、イタリア、スペイン、英国、日本) における1型糖尿病の発症状況と今後の見通しについて分析し、疾患の特徴や、現在の有病者の総数と傾向 (年齢層別・男女別傾向)、今後10年間の動向見通しなどを調査しております。
Type 1 diabetes, formerly referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes, is a type of diabetes that predominantly develops in children or young adults before the age of 40 years. The condition, therefore, was also referred to as juvenile diabetes. Type 1 diabetes accounts for about 5-10% of all diabetes cases and occurs as a result of the autoimmune destruction of pancreatic beta cells, which are responsible for producing insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar. If the condition is left untreated, blood sugar levels accumulate. In addition to the pancreas, high levels of blood sugar can damage other major organs, such as the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, and kidneys. Such damage can be life threatening. Furthermore, research suggests that the incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing globally, which may lead to an increased burden on healthcare resources (Holt, 2004; World Health Organization, 2013; Mayo Clinic, 2017).
To forecast the diagnosed prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes in the 8MM, GlobalData epidemiologists selected nationally representative population-based studies that provided data for the diagnosed prevalence of type 1 diabetes in the 8MM.
In the 8MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes will increase from 3,396,254 cases in 2016 to 4,725,990 cases in 2026, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 3.92% per year. Among the 8MM, the US had the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes in 2016 and 2026, at 1,564,973 cases and 2,274,873 cases, respectively. Canada had the lowest number of prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes in 2016 and 2026, at 163,113 cases and 254,166 cases, respectively. GlobalData epidemiologists attribute the increase in the diagnosed prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes in the 8MM to environmental factors (seasonal variation) coupled with genetic factors, such as a family history of type 1 diabetes. However, further research is necessary to clearly understand the epidemiological factors responsible for the growth in the prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes (Onkamo et al., 1999).
