Diabetes is a growing global epidemic. We need a solution which is simple, reliable and safe.
Atrogi is developing a treatment to help T2D have a healthy life again!
Over 400 million people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the disease causes over 5 millions deaths each year. Diet and exercise alone are inadequate to treat the disease and patients need on average a new intervention with glucose-lowering agents every 3-4 years in order to achieve control. Successful treatment of T2D therefore requires a constant supply of new drugs.
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is the most common form of diabetes and can be caused by several factors.
- Lifestyle choices – Overweight, obesity and physical inactivity
Genetic – The disease can run in families and is more prevalent in certain groups
T2D can be very nasty, leading to complications in numerous parts of the body and can significantly increase the risk of premature death.
Diabetes is a killer
5 million people died from diabetes in 2015.
Malaria – kills 0.6 million people
Tuberculosis – kills 1.5 million people
HIV/AIDS – kills 1.5 million people
Diabetes is an important health problem and 1 of 4 noncommunicable diseases targeted for action by world leaders.
