India is home to the world’s second-largest adult diabetes population and every sixth person with diabetes in the world is an Indian.
Cause of Concern
We have seen a 150% increase in diabetes patients over the last 30 years. A more worrying factor is the progressively lower age at which diabetes is being diagnosed. It is critically affecting 25-34 year olds across rural and urban India making diabetes an existential crisis for the country.
Lifestyle & Diet
Lifestyle plays an essential role in managing type 1 diabetes, and understanding the effect of diet and physical activity on glycemia is essential for optimal management of the disease. Indian diets are rich in simple carbohydrates while the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) recommends at least 70% of the total intake to be made up of complex carbohydrates. This deficit can be met only with a combination of nutritional rebalancing and diet supplementation.
Type 1 diabetes is characterized by lack of insulin production which requires regular administration of it. Insulin is a hormone that our body needs so that the glucose is absorbed by the cells and energy is produced for the normal functioning of the body.
