Summary from a very large CDC study on diabetes. Longer life-spans are definitely complicating the picture.

"The ongoing diabetes and obesity epidemics have combined with ever-increasing human lifespans to increase lifetime risk of type 2 diabetes to about 40 percent for both men and women, said lead study author Edward Gregg, chief of the epidemiology and statistics branch in the division of diabetes translation at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention"

  • Characteristics and Outcomes of R01 Competing Renewal Applications (“Type 2s”) December 22, 2016
