You may not have considered the possibility of becoming diabetic. However, the fact is, you could already be at risk.
Did you know that India has globally the highest number of diabetics in a single country? That the incidence of diabetes in the cities is more than twice the percentage in the rural areas?
In 2011, an estimated 61 million Indians were diabetic, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), and by 2030, it predicts that over 100 million Indians would be diabetic. Also, Indians develop diabetes at a very young age, at least 10 to 15 years earlier than the western population.
All of which means that if your close family members have it, if you have several lifestyle factors that together place you at a real risk, you should choose a simple yet comprehensive assessment.
