DIABETES

Diabetes has been dubbed the epidemic of the 21st century by the World Health Organization, with 8.7% of the Indian population affected and a significant portion unaware of their condition. Type 2 diabetes, which is part of the metabolic syndrome alongside obesity, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, poses a major health hazard as a predisposing factor to non-communicable diseases such as stroke, kidney failure, and certain cancers.
Phenotypically, Indians have higher body fat and poor lean muscle mass leading to increased chances of development of insulin resistance, the major pathognomic factor for the development of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
As India takes on the mantle of diabetic capital and insulin usage rises, diabetic surgery emerges as a potential solution for this subset of patients.
