Diabetes is a chronic disease which has taken a toll on health in recent years. Diabetes leads to several other health problems like it doubles the risk of stroke and heart attack, accelerates ageing and damages the kidneys. In India, Diabetes is becoming a growing challenge. As per the World Health Organisation, around 8.7% of the Indians between the age group of 20 to 70 years are diabetic. Diabetes is a non-communicable disease but is increasing due to several factors like unhealthy diet, rapid urbanisation, and hectic work schedule. It occurs when the pancreas is not able to produce enough insulin or the body is unable to effectively use the insulin produced.
Diabetes is basically of two types:
Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is caused due to the lack of insulin production. Type 2 diabetes is caused because of the ineffective use of insulin produced with the body. Regular physical activity and a healthy diet can help in preventing and controlling diabetes.
