Study populations

The Czech Republic, in 2016, had an estimated population of 10.5m with 19% aged 65 years and over. By 2050, older adults (65 years and over) are expected to constitute 30% of the total population.

Alongside the ageing population, the prevalence of people with diabetes appears to be increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 799,300 people living with diabetes and an estimated 301,800 undiagnosed cases.
