Diabetes The Leveler-Sweeping Across Nations

Diabetes seems more a leveler than any other disease. It strikes without any partiality- regardless of age, income, status, color or sex//.

When Shankar Vishwanath, 48, a team leader at a leading software company from Bangalore visited a diagnostic facility for his annual medical check-up, the doctors there could not but suspect him from inheriting the metabolic disease - diabetes.

Yet as pediatrician Dr P Maiya says: “We are beginning to see an increase in the number of diabetes cases, even among children.”

Presently there are an estimated 33 million diabetes cases in India, China, Japan and Pakistan. “With several people still not diagnosed there would be a rapid increase in associated problems like cardiac problems, stroke, renal failure and blindness, which either
