World Diabetes Day is an awareness campaign that happens globally for bringing focus upon the Diabetes Mellitus (common name Diabetes). It is held on 14th November every year. This campaign is led by the IDF i.e the International Diabetes Federation.
This disease is spreading in the country at a fast pace. According to the Internation Diabetes Federation, In India, 8.8 percent of the population is affected by diabetes. An estimate was made up and it was concluded that by 2045 the affected people will go up to 151 million compared to 82 million at present.
Type-2 Diabetes is common in India because of some reasons. The primary reason is the availability of sugary foods and drinks and the secondary reason is little or no exercise.
Diet in India is neglected by Indians and some people are more than happy to live in an inactive manner with a big belly of fat eating nutrition-less food and just ignoring the importance of a healthy diet. Well, this needs to stop.
The government is taking a number of steps to eradicate this issue like the 'Fit India' campaign to motivate people to eat right and exercise.
World Diabetes Day is a reminder of this situation and how people need to work on it by taking the necessary steps.
