NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly every society on earth is affected by diabetes -- one of the most pressing health crises facing humanity today. Currently, more than 246 million people worldwide are living with the disease, a number that is expected to explode to 380 million within 20 years. Despite recent advancements -- including new medications, monitoring devices and measurements -- the fight against diabetes continues to be an uphill battle. In an effort to raise awareness and uncover new clues for combating the disease, Discovery Health, with support from an unrestricted educational grant from Novo Nordisk, presents DIABETES: A GLOBAL EPIDEMIC -- the definitive look at how diabetes affects the global community.

Featuring narration from five-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close, DIABETES: A GLOBAL EPIDEMIC takes viewers across six continents to gain greater knowledge of the disease and how it affects different communities. In a television first, Discovery Health travels around the world to investigate diabetes' escalating human and economic toll across differing cultures and health care systems. The documentary's premiere comes on the heels of a historic milestone -- the first United Nations World Diabetes Day, which will be observed on November 14, 2007. With generous support from Novo Nordisk, the one-hour documentary will be presented commercial-free in the United States.
