Officials at the WHO said diabetes continues to cause millions of deaths in the world with Etienne Krug, who is heading the WHO's response to the disease, calling diabetes “one of the leading killers in the world today.” The report said diabetes and elevated blood glucose levels linked to the disease caused a total of 3.7 million deaths in 2012 worldwide. Published ahead of the United Nations World Health Day on April 7, the study estimated that the annual global cost of diabetes, including health care needs, exceeds USD 827 billion (728 billion euros), adding that the global GDP losses linked to diabetes could reach USD 1.7 trillion by 2030.
