Type 2 Diabetes in Vietnam


A study by Australian and Vietnamese scientists found about 11% of men and 12% of women in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City had undiagnosed type 2 diabetes, according to a BBC report.  This was in addition to the 4% of people who had been diagnosed.

The researchers from Australia’s Garvan Institute of Medical Research blamed changing lifestyles and fast food for the rise in cases of diabetes.  For a full report on diabetes in Vietnam see Elizabeth Snouffer’s report.
