Diabetes rates in the US have been increasing substantially. While the number of people with diabetes in the US continues to grow, the number of new cases has been declining since 2009, after decades of increases in new cases. Although the numbers are not growing dramatically each year, they are still alarmingly high. About 8.1 million people with diabetes do not have knowledge that they have diabetes as prediabetes and type2 diabetes have few physical symptoms.
Diabetes mellitus being the most common chronic disease with high mortality, morbidity and costs, the number of people with diabetes is still increasing in US and other countries. More than 29 million Americans are living with diabetes, and 86 million are living with prediabetes. Though the benefits of tight control of blood glucose have been well recognized still the management of diabetes is complex which demands for the more efficient standardized antidiabetic regimen.
The US Antidiabetics Drug Market has seen a resurgence of activity in recent years with promising new products, such as ultra-rapid-acting and liver targeted insulin analogues, and insulin plus GLP-1 combinations in late stage development. Earlier stage candidates include several oral formulations, as well as ultra-long acting insulin analogues. Some ultra-long acting insulin analogues in development have the potential to greatly reduce the dosing frequency to just once weekly for basal insulin needs, as opposed to once daily.
