Ajaz Ahmed Wani [4]


Abstract: Diabetes is one of the largest global health emergency of this century. India is one of the epicentre of this diabetes mellitus pandemic. Rapid socio economic development and demographic changes along with increased susceptibility for Indian individuals have lead to the explosive increase in the prevalence of this disease over the past four decades. The data available regarding this disease reflects that the susceptibility of Asian Indian people to the complication of diabetes mellitus as compared to the western countries. The estimate of 2021 according to Ministry of Health and Family welfare that 74.2 million individuals has diabetes in India which is expected to increase 124.8 million in 2045. This increase is due to the fact that the management of this disease in India faces multiple challenges such as low level of awareness, paucity of trained medical and paramedical staff and unaffordability of medication and services. Moreover people with diabetes have a worse quality of life than people with non chronic illness, but a better quality of life than people with most other serious chronic disease. Complications of diabetes are the most important disease specific determinant of quality of life.
