I don’t have anyone in the family with Diabetes. How did I get it then?

Family history certainly is an important factor, but the fact is being Asian, we all have high-risk gene for Diabetes. In India 4% of villagers and up to 15% of city dwellers have Diabetes. Not only do we have more Diabetes, we are getting it at an earlier age than people in the west (around 10 yrs). Diabetes can be due to your lifestyle choices (such as diet, smoking, alcohol or lack of exercise). The good news is that a good management of diabetes can go a long way in helping you lead a normal life. Diabetes is a disorder that can be lived with, provided its management is done well. Family with diabetes is also common in India.
