Diabetes occurs primarily in middle and late life. Between birth and 20 years of age, 0.1 to 1% of children have diabetes. Between the age of 41 and 50, 0.5 to 2% of people have diabetes, while the numbers increase to 2 to 10% among people 61 years of age and older. In particular, Asian Indians (both natives in the Indian subcontinent, and those migrated to South Africa, Fiji, UK, USA etc.) appear to have a higher prevalence (genetic predisposition) of diabetes, than many white European populations.
