Diabetes is an epidemic in India, where about 63 million people suffer from diabetes, and this figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025. Delhi alone has more than 30 lakh people suffering from this disease (Indo-US collaborative study). A study conducted by Dr Anoop Misra (DoctorNDTV Expert) showed that 37% of urban south Asian Indians suffer from diabetes and pre-diabetes. Diabetes will be the world’s seventh largest killer by 2030 unless intense and focused efforts are made by governments, communities and individuals.
