DIABETES

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body. With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. There are currently about 71 million people with Diabetes in India. This number is expected to double by 2040. Early diagnosis and treatment can arrest the spread of this epidemic. Diabetes, if left untreated, can cause heart attacks, blindness, foot amputation, kidney failure and can result in death. Ignoring Diabetes and wishing it away is illogical as managing it becomes more and more difficult.
Signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes often develop slowly. Are as follows :
  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased hunger
