Authors' objectives:

Type 2 diabetes will become one of the greatest challenges facing the Danish health service in the coming years.
A total of between 200,000 and 300,000 Danes suffer from the disease. Of these, approximately half are unaware of the fact. In addition, growth in the number of patients with Type 2 diabetes is increasing. Diabetes itself can cause troublesome symptoms, but the main reason that diabetes is a major and costly disease for society is that the disease can lead to a number of diabetic complications that can have very serious consequences for the patient’s state of health in the long term.
It is for these reasons among others that the present broad health technology assessment of Type 2 diabetes has been carried out.
