Diabetes statistics are staggering. The numbers have drastically increased to 50 million in India.
A recent study states that India is home to people suffering from diabetes, making it one of the top three countries for the global diabetic population. Diabetes is thus, a serious public health issue, but one that can be managed and in some cases, prevented. Most people who develop diabetes are overweight or obese.
With changes in lifestyle and nutrition, people with diabetes can gradually reduce the dose of medicines, go drug free, live well and decrease the more serious risks of the condition.
