Diabetes is a chronic disease that either occurs when the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin or when the body cannot efficiently use the insulin it produces. People suffering from diabetes often fall prey to Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar which is quite common during uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body's systems.
The scariest fact of diabetes is that the number of cases has been rising exponentially all over the world! The number of people suffering from diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014! The global prevalence among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014 i.e. it has almost doubled in just 34 years!
In 2016, it has been estimated that around 1.6 million deaths were directly caused due to diabetes while 2.2 million death was caused due to high blood glucose in 2012! According to WHO, diabetes was the 7th leading cause of death in 2016 itself!
