Figures show that Indonesia has 7.6 million people with diabetes. This number may increase to 12 million, with an annual growth rate of 6 percent by 2030. According to Sandeep Sur, president director of healthcare company PT Novo Nordisk Indonesia, of these 7.6 million people 41 percent have been diagnosed only, and only 39 percent have received treatment. And sadly, only the remaining 1 percent takes medication regularly. With 7.6 million people living with the disease, Indonesia ranks 10th in the world by number of diabetics patients.
