Pregnant women in urban areas at risk of getting gestational diabetes

EAT WELL : Take control of your diabetes

Indian adults have a pre-diabetes prevalence of 10.3 per cent, the study revealed on World Diabetes Day, which is observed on November 14 every year.

The findings showed that emotional wellbeing stood out as a major factor for respondents, with three in five (64 per cent) saying they often or sometimes feel down due to their condition.

Subramaniam says some 1.8 million Malaysians may have diabetes but were unaware of the disease.

Globally, it is estimated that over 199 million women are living with diabetes and this total is projected to increase to 313 million by 2040. The complications of the disease can lead to heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and lower limb amputation.

There are 70 million adults in India with diabetes, which affects 422 million people worldwide. "The U of I Extension provides research-based resources to help prevent, manage and care for persons with diabetes", Susan Glassman, a nutrition and wellness educator, said.

"Effective diabetes care requires that a person's emotional needs are taken into account alongside their physical care needs". We want to see a system where specialist support - from people who understand diabetes - is made available to those who need it. On the sidelines of the drive, former India cricketer Anil Kumble, Changing Diabetes ambassador, released the survey findings of the "Diabetes and Women's Health', conducted by Novo Nordisk in partnership with Kantar IMRB". The camp was attended by more than a thousand Secretariat employees who apprised themselves about diabetes.

"As we raise awareness on diabetes today it is important to note that most diabetes patients are women".

During National Diabetes Awareness Month, the YMCA is encouraging people to learn their risks for pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes and take preventive steps to potentially reduce their chances of developing the disease.

The campaign was flagged off by actress Amulya in the presence of Dr H. Sudarshan Ballal, chairman, Manipal Hospitals, and Dr Karthik Prabhakar, Consultant and HoD Diabetes and Endocrinology. She gets lots of support talking to others who live with diabetes and struggle with their food.
