"India is facing an epidemic of diabetes. At present, confirmed diabetes patients in India are 67 million, with another 30 million in prediabetes group. By 2030, India will have the largest number of patients in the world. Diabetes is not only a blood sugar problem, but brings along other complications as well," warns Dr Arun Bal, diabetic foot surgeon. In our intervention area we found many people affected by diabetes. So this month we started  diabetes awareness programs, and conducted the program for self-help group members   and tuition students on 17.9.14 and 27.9.14.
In these programs the reason and cause of diabetes, diagnose, treatment, diet, exercise and prevention was explained.
