Indians have a severe case of sweet tooth and a long-lasting affair with sweets. This makes us the world’s largest consumer of sugar and home of the second-largest diabetic population. And with diabetics comes other health risk factors such as obesity, heart disease etc.
There were times when people had to stand in long queues just to get a basic health check-up, which lead to anxiety causing them more trouble than it was. Back in those days, diabetes was surrounded by a lot of myths and ignorance about people’s health.
Diabetes has increased a lot in last few years and it’s mainly detected among young people during their corporate health check-ups. According to an article by First post, the Indian Council for Medical Research, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, both research institutes, and the Public Health Foundation of India, an advocacy found out that diabetes is India’s fastest growing disease: 72 million cases recorded in 2017, figure expected to nearly double by 2025.
Diabetes seems like an easy thing to manage but what people don’t seem to realize is that it can become dangerous with time if not maintained with the right diet such as food high in fibre including vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, whole-wheat flour and wheat bran, heart-healthy fish and regular check-ups.
With the advance progress in medicines, there are a lot of ways to keep your cholesterol level and diabetes under control like Magna Code in Hyderabad.
Despite creating the awareness about diabetes, there is a lag in patient participation when it comes to self- management. There could be various reasons, stress at the workplace and odd hours leading to a not so hygiene diet resulting in riskier diabetes.
Avoiding diabetes from an early stage would be easier and advisable if one maintains a routine diet and exercise. Don’t let diabetes win because you are too lazy to do it. Keep your body and your mind on priority, because even if one of it is unhealthy you could be in trouble.
