Diabetes is one of the most discussed topics today due to havoc it creates including reduced lifespans of its patients.
Times of India reported last year that an estimated 3.4 million deaths are caused due to high blood sugar according to a World Health Organization (WHO) fact sheet on diabetes.
There are two types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. 90-95% diabetes patients suffer from Type 2.
Although Type 2 diabetes can develop due to many causes such as age, stress, genes, family history etc., one of the the main reasons is body weight. An obese person is much more likely to have diabetes.
Its alarming that about 90% of obese are found to be Type 2 diabetes patients.
This is because if you are over-weight or obese, you need to exert more effort on your body’s ability to use insulin to control blood sugar levels. This effort needed by your body keeps on going up and full scale diabetes forms. This is when you will start needing lifelong medications and injections to control blood sugar levels.
Diabetes is a catalyst causing about 60 different types of deadly complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, foot amputation etc. to name a few.
Hence it is so critical to attack Diabetes for leading a healthy and long life.
