3 Stocks to Rule the Next Decade of Diabetes Treatments

Diabetes is a huge threat to the world's health. More than 330 million people around the world are estimated to have suffered from the disease in 2011, and more than 550 million are expected to suffer from it by 2030. However, where there's a big problem, big pharma has a big solution. For Merck (NYSE: MRK  ) , Sanofi (NYSE: SNY  ) , and Novo Nordisk (NYSE: NVO  ) , treating diabetes has become a cash-generating windfall.

These three companies boast three of the top drugs for treating diabetes around the world, from Merck's strong Januvia to Sanofi's timeless Lantus. However, patent expirations and tough competition are making the diabetes field as competitive a market as any in big pharma. How will these three giants fare in the next 10 years for treating the world's fastest-growing health crisis?

In the video below, Fool contributor Dan Carroll tells you how these three big pharma kings dominate diabetes treatment -- and how they're poised to continue their reigns for another decade to come.

    Since the Albert Einstein Medical College clinical trial in which Biotivia Transmax was shown to prevent pre-diabetes from evolving into Type 2 Diabetes, and several subsequent human trials which confirm that Transmax reduces blood glucose levels, blood pressure and body weight, used both alone or in combination with the traditional Diabetes treatments such as Metformin, this company has become the default producer of Transmax Resveratrol. This compound has enormous potential as both a preventative and treatment for Diabetes.
