Diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic health diseases in India and what makes it worse is the list of complications that it causes like eye problems, kidney disease, nerve damage, heart disease, etc. With around 400 million people affected by this disease worldwide, managing and spreading awareness about it is very crucial. Explaining in simple words, insulin released by the pancreas helps in regulating blood sugar levels in the body and in the condition of diabetes, either enough insulin is not released or the body is not able to make enough usage of insulin. This leads to increased levels of blood sugar, which further leads to serious health problems. There is no specific treatment for diabetes but rather a range of lifestyle changes that need to be incorporated into daily life. Along with these lifestyle changes, sustainable prevention plans need to be in place to help not just manage but even prevent diabetes. (Nataliya Vaitkevich)
