World Diabetes Day: Include these five foods in your diet if you are diabetic
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.
Being overweight (obesity), giving birth to big babies (an equivalent of 4 kilograms) and family history with a parent or a sibling with type 2 diabetes or history of gestational diabetes in the previous pregnancy are high on the list of risk factors.
The survey was conducted across 14 cities in the country - Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Indore, Guwahati, Kochi and Vijayawada.
According to official statistics, diabetes has been recognised as the ninth leading cause of death in women, yet many women with the disease are unaware they have it.
Now the charity is urging for increased provision of psychological support for people living with diabetes across Scotland.
"But in order to achieve that, we need to see sustained funding of £44 million for the diabetes transformation programme, which sets out to improve the treatment and care for people with diabetes".
The latest estimates from the International Diabetes Federation mean that one in 11 adults worldwide have the condition, which occurs when the amount of sugar in the blood is too high.
Often, women tend to overlook their own needs and requirements giving preference to the work and family.
Type 2 diabetes can be treated with drugs, and many people can reverse their condition by adopting a healthy lifestyle - a healthy diet and exercise.
"Women above 35 years tend to have a lot of insulin resistance and therefore increased blood sugar levels", she says.
Dr Bhat said that children having type 1 diabetes must be allowed to use insulin pumps in exam halls where no gadgets are allowed.
It is treated with daily insulin injections or an insulin pump.
How diabetes affects emotional wellbeing stood out as a major factor for Scottish respondents, with 64% saying that they often or sometimes feel down due to their diabetes. They explained that there are a number of stigmas that revolve around diabetes, more specifically in case of women. It has a low glycemic index score and is very rich in dietary fiber that helps in treating constipation which is a common complaint people with diabetes have. Early detection may help in prevention and controlling the disease.
Diabetes UK is calling for more provision of psychological support for people living with the condition across Scotland.
"Indians get diabetes at a lower body weight, with around 20-25 per cent people (diabetics) not being overweight", said Dr Anoop Misra, chairman, Fortis Centre of Diabetes, Metabolic Diseases and Endocrinology, was quoted as saying in the report.
