Diabetes Care Details
Diabetes is becoming a widely prevalent condition in India.Infact, one in eight adult Indians is diabetic, thanks to factors like sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits and genetic predisposition. In addition, thousands are developing pre-diabetic conditions (Impaired Fasting Glucose-IFG/Impaired Glucose Tolerance-IGT) which, if not managed properly, can lead to diabetes in the future.
Diabetes not only impacts your lifestyle, it can also cause serious health complications. It is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, Kidney failure, adult blindness and amputations. A diabetic is 34 times more likely to get any of these complications as compared to non-diabetic. However, if diabetes is managed effectively, one can avoid these complications altogether.
Moreover, diabetes related complications cab also seriously impact your finances. This is compounded by the fact that conventional medical insurance does not cover a diabetic for these expenses.
