• The total number of prevalent cases of PDN across the countries under study will increase by 31% from 9.9 million in 2016 to 13 million in 2036.
  • We expect the age-specific proportions of PDN in the diabetic population to remain constant over the 20-year period based on the lack of evidence suggesting changes in risk factors associated with PDN.
