Epidemic of Diabetes: We are currently in the midst of an epidemic of diabetes throughout the
nation and the world. Unfortunately, India is among the most severely
affected countries in the world. One in four Indians either have diabetes
or are at high risk of developing it.
The epidemic mainly involves “Type 2” diabetes, and is principally
driven by changes in lifestyle and eating habits over the past 20 years.
Specifically, most people, including children, are less physically
active and have less healthy eating habits. “Type 1” diabetes is also
becoming more common.
On the bright side, our understanding of the
underlying causes of both types of diabetes has increased.
Many new treatments and preventive measures for diabetes and its
complications are now available and will be spotlighted on our
website as well as in our newsletters.
Application of existing standards of care and
preventive measures throughout our community are important goals of
The Complications of Diabetes: Diabetes confers an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and
amputation. It can also lead to “complications”, specifically
kidney damage, kidney failure, problems with eyesight, and damage to
nerves. Fortunately, with the right management, most of these
complications can now be delayed or prevented. In addition,
diabetes during pregnancy needs special attention to ensure a good
outcome for mother and baby.
