Study populations

Slovenia, in 2016, had an estimated population of just over 2m with 18% being over the age of 65 years and 15% under 15 years of age. By 2050, population projections suggest a decrease in the population and with it a significant change in the age distribution, 32% of the population will be over the age of 65.

Alongside the ageing population, diabetes prevalence is increasing – with the most recent statistics reporting 168,200 people living with the condition and an estimated 63,500 undiagnosed cases.
