Diabetes Mellitus is one of the major killers of the modern world. According to WHO the number of people living with diabetes has nearly quadrupled since 1980 to 422 million adults, most of who live in developing countries including India. This dramatic rise has been a cause for concern that this year WHO marked its World Health Day by issuing a call for action on diabetes with its #BeatDiabetes campaign.
Facts and Figures
About 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, this number likely to more than double in the next 20 years.
In 2012, diabetes was the direct cause of 1.5 million deaths. More than 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
Type- 2 accounts for around 90% of all diabetes cases worldwide. Reports of type- 2 diabetes in children too have increased worldwide.
India ranks second in the world after China, for people living with diabetes and closely associated with risks of diabetes. As per the latest figures, there are approximately 65 million Indians living with diabetes currently, compared to 50.8 million in 2010. This is nearly 8% of India’s adult population. An estimate shows that nearly 1 million Indians die due to diabetes every year with the average age on onset being 42.5 years.
India’s economic boom has been accompanied by a meteoric increase in the number of people with diabetes – and those at risk for the disease. Prevalence rates are up by 20% in some cities.
This is largely due to the changing food habits and the drastic increase in stressful lifestyles in urban society. A recent report confirmed that obesity in Indians is primarily driven by nutrition, lifestyle, demographic transitions, increase in faulty diets and physical inactivity, in the background of genetic predisposition.
While there is no cure for diabetes, with proper care, medication, and change in food and lifestyle, diabetes can be managed effectively. If we are to make any headway in arresting the rise in diabetes, we need to rethink our daily lifestyles: to eat healthy, be physically active, and avoid excessive weight gain.
Ayurveda and Diabetes
Diabetes has been discussed at length in the ancient texts of Ayurveda and is referred to as Madhumeha. In the texts, Madhumeha is called a palliative disease, one that cannot be completely cured, but can be controlled by food and medicine.
Ayurvedic treatment of diabetes recommends a combination of different types of therapies and modification of lifestyle including administration of Ayurvedic herbs which are anti –diabetic. These herbs of Ayurveda include Karela (Bitter gourd), Jambul (Indian blackberry), Neem, Methi (Fenugreek), Turmeric and Amlaki (Indian gooseberry) among others.
In fact Karela, Methi and Jambul have been scientifically proven for their efficacy in healthy blood sugar management in various clinical studies.
