Diabetes Awareness: Know, Prevent, Control”
No one may or may not support you throughout life, but once diabetes has taken hold of you, then it will not leave you for the rest of your life.
Once you are in the grip of diabetes, then age passes only in the company of stress and doctors. Due to our poor lifestyle and food habits, the disease of diabetes or diabetes has reached every household today.
According to the latest survey of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the total number of diabetes patients in India has crossed 100 million, which is 30 million more than the population of Britain.
The total population of the United Kingdom is 70 million, while the number of diabetes patients in India has crossed 100 million. ICMR’s survey tells. That the number of diabetes patients in India has increased by 44 percent in the last four years.
The number of people who are at risk of getting diabetes in the near future is even more. According to the survey, there are about 13 crore 30 lakh patients in India who are pre-diabetic, which means they are at full risk of developing diabetes in the future.
Although earlier the International Diabetes Federation had predicted in the year 2019 that by the year 2030, the number of diabetes patients in India would cross 100 million, we crossed this scary figure seven years ago and today About eleven and a half percent of the country’s population has become a victim of diabetes.
In this also there are three crore people who have become victims of it in the last four years and these figures tell us that today we are really on the way to becoming a ‘diabetic state’ and its ‘capital’ is famous for tourism and a center of tourist attraction. It is Goa.
Today, 26.4 percent of the total population of Goa has become a victim of diabetes. After this comes the number of Puducherry where 26.3 percent of people are diabetic patients. Similarly, 25.5 percent of people in Kerala, and 20.4 percent of people in Chandigarh have come under the grip of diabetes.
Even in the country’s capital Delhi, 17.8 percent of the population is suffering from diabetes. Today, 17 percent of the world’s diabetes patients are in India. That is, on average one patient out of every six is Indian.
The number of people who lost their lives due to this disease is also not less. According to ‘IDF Diabetes Atlas’, in the year 2021, a total of 6 lakh 47 thousand 831 people had lost their lives due to this disease.
In fact, diabetes was earlier considered to be a disease inherited from parents, but today most of the patients in India are those who have fallen prey to it due to their poor lifestyle and diet, which is known as type-2 diabetes. And if these people improve their lifestyle a little, then they can save themselves from this sweet disease.
Diabetes 1 type
There are mainly two types of diabetes, first type- 1 diabetes, is a disease that is transferred to you in a genetic way, that is, if someone in your house has diabetes, then you also have an increased risk of falling prey to that disease.
Diabetes type 2
There is another type of diabetes, type- 2 diabetes, which is mainly a disease related to lifestyle or lifestyle, such as not doing physical work or doing a lot of work, not controlling food and drink, not getting enough sleep, and increasing stress. The main causes of type- 2 diabetes are.
Can be diabetes free
If you are in the early stages of diabetes, then you can also become completely diabetes-free. In a recent research conducted in India, 60 such people aged 18 to 60 years were given 20 grams of almonds ie (about 17 to 18 almonds) half an hour before breakfast,
lunch, and dinner. Along with this, his diet was also controlled, and asked to walk for 45 minutes daily, this was done for about three months. After three months, 33 percent of these people had normal blood sugar levels.
That is, the risk of diabetes was completely averted in him. By adopting a similar lifestyle, you can protect yourself from the increasing outbreak of this serious epidemic like diabetes.
High carbohydrate intake
If we only talk about food, then India is dominated by carbohydrates from north to south. That is, roughly speaking, we consume more wheat or rice. Vegetarian people also rarely consume protein-rich things like pulses and kidney beans in their diet.
Excess use of carbohydrates is considered to be one of the reasons for the increase in diabetes. According to a survey, more than 13 crore people in India are pre-diabetic.
And according to doctors, about one-third of pre-diabetic people turn into diabetics every year. However, if food and lifestyle are improved, then not only these figures, but we can also improve our health.
