Bengaluru girl urges Modi to declare chronic type 1 diabetes a disability

Dr. Alan M. Jacobson chief research officer

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation estimates 40,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes every year. "Poorly controlled blood glucose in young people with type-2 diabetes means looking at frequent hospitalisation and higher co-morbidities and complications like kidney failure in the 30s".

The total number of diabetics is now 451 million and is expected to reach 693 million by 2045 if current trends continue.

"In Scotland, we'd like to see increased availability of trained staff to meet the emotional and psychological needs of people living with diabetes".

There are two types of diabetes: In type 1, the body does not produce insulin at all and in type 2, the body does not produce enough insulin or the amount that is produced doesn't absorb sugar from our blood. Indian adults have a pre-diabetes prevalence of 10.3 per cent, the study revealed on World Diabetes Day, which is observed on November 14 every year.

What are the symptoms of diabetes? "Schools have to educate and train their staff in assisting and managing children with type 1 diabetes, a life threatening disorder", said Adya's mother Asha.

The key message is that all women with diabetes require affordable and equitable access to care and education to better manage the illness and improve their health outcomes. In some instances as one ages, and the disease progresses, insulin injections may also be required. Early detection may help in prevention and controlling the disease.

Gestational diabetes can be regulated by eating a balanced diet, regular exercise, monitoring sugar levels and regular pre-natal medical checkups.


Type 2 is far more common than type 1, but is still rare in childhood.

According to the Newspaper, The research was aimed to study sales trends of all top-selling drugs in the last nine years."The increasing sales of high-cost medications, as revealed by our data, are particularly worrisome, since most Indians pay out of their pockets, and almost seven per cent experience catastrophic expenditure because of diabetes".

This year, the International Diabetes Federation decides to focus on the needs of diabetic women.

It is however comforting to know that efforts to deal with this disease has not been left as the sole responsibility of the government. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225.

Diagnosis is often late and disease management is poor, which leads to people landing up with complications in a hospital emergency.

Model Danielle Lloyd has told how she suffered from the condition while pregnant with her fourth child and was told to have bed rest.
