There were more than 825,000 diabetes patients in the Czech Republic last year; 2011 saw 19,000 new cases registered. The number of patients relying on proper diet alone dropped to 131,000, while the number requiring medication went up. In 2011, 23,290 people with diabetes died; in 2,378 cases, the disease was a factor behind cause of death. The chairman of the Czech Diabetes Association, Milan Kvapil, told the Czech news agency Type-2 diabetes sufferers - especially those ignoring the dangers of the illness - on average died ten years earlier than healthy individuals.
