China Faces a Diabetes Epidemic

China faces a diabetes epidemic, with almost one in 10 adults having the disease even as most cases remain undiagnosed, researchers have said.

Tests showed diabetes was more endemic than previously thought. The figures suggest China has some 90 million diabetics, far more than India. Nearly 150 million more people are showing early symptoms.

Rapid economic growth has affected public health, through urbanization, changed diets and more sedentary lifestyles.
