INDIA NUMBER ONE!!....No.......?

My every heart beat says it want to see India at number one position… be it Power, Politics or even in CRICKET …but somehow we as a common man comes across the news that show India in good light…I am not saying it’s bad…but what about the issues which should be given a thought…

INDIA will become the number one country in the world with maximum number of people with diabetics. India has more than 30million people with diabetics. The numbers of diabetics are climbing the steps day by day. According to World Health Organization (WHO)’s press release in 1998, these people will be in the age group of 40 and 64. What is the reason for it? Is that the Indian genes or its lifestyle or the eating habits….

Now let us know what diabetics is in simple words, Diabetics is a condition of the body in which the body does not produce much insulin or may not be able to use it properly. Insulin is a hormone which coverts sugar and other food items into energy needed for the day to day activities of the human body. The actual cause of diabetics is still not known but hereditary reasons and lifestyle of the people plays a very crucial role.

When the pancreas gland does not produce enough insulin for the sugar to energy conversion, the blood glucose level continues to rise without control; it results in the diabetic condition. This condition is termed a Diabetic Mellitus. There are three major types of Diabetics-
1. Type-I Diabetes
2. Type -II Diabetes
3. Gestational Diabetes

Type-I Diabetes-
Type-I Diabetics occurs when the body is unable to produce insulin. This type of diabetics appears in children and youth below 40 years of age. This group of people should be injected with insulin. But this type is less common.

Type-II Diabetes-
Hereditary and the lifestyle are the major causes of type II diabetes. 90% of diabetics belong to this group. In this case, the body is still able to produce insulin but it is not enough for the body functions or the insulin does not work properly. This condition is called insulin resistance. This is related to overweight. Type-II diabetes is seen mostly in people over 40 years of age.

Gestation Diabetes-
This is another type of diabetes called gestational diabetes which occurs in some women during pregnancy. This may lead to complications during pregnancy, labour and delivery. Women who get gestational diabetics may develop type-II diabetics.

What can Indians do to control Diabetes?
 Avoid sweets completely.
 Fried and fatty foods should be of minimal consumption.
 Insulin will work properly if overweight is reduced/controlled.
 Foods containing more fiber should be taken.
 Amount of oil used in a day should not be more than 4 tablespoons.
 Avoid Vanaspathi and Margarine.
 Avoid excessive eating.
 Do not skip exercise.
 Reduce stress and maintain good health.

It is always said ‘Precaution is better than Cure’ but somewhere Indians have a laidback attitude.we don’t go to the dentist until the tooth aches.. Now its high time to change this attitude and start taking care of ourselves before the red light is ON. So I wish that atleast India does not become number one in Diabetics and that’s in our hands.. I know every Indian Hopes that..Take Care.
