Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome; INDIA is in race to lead the world by becoming the “Diabetes Capital of the World”. We presently have about 6 crore Diabetic patients and almost an equal number of people have diabetes - but they remain undetected.
To contain this increasing burden of Non-communicable Diseases, which by far has become the leading cause of mortality in the world, representing 63% of all deaths. (WHO, 2008) Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, has launched the National Program on Prevention and Control of Diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases and stroke (NPDCS) on 8th January, 2008 with the objective of prevention and control of NCD’s.
The 4 leading chronic diseases, which cause maximum death, in India, are:
1) Cardiovascular conditions
3) Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- 1 in every 3 persons have High Blood Pressure.1 in 3 of those who have high Blood Pressure may develop HEART ATTACK.
- 60% of people having Diabetes also have High Blood Pressure.
