Diabetes is a disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose/sugar. It occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough of the insulin hormone, which regulates blood sugar, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. In either of these conditions, diabetes can lead to complications in many parts of the body and increase the risk of premature death. Diabetes is a chronic disease; however it is a progressive non-communicable disease (NCD).
According to World Health Organization (WHO), 422 million adults live with diabetes, which is an increase of nearly four times since 1980. Today 1 person in 11 suffers from diabetes, with the largest affected population present in developing countries. This number is likely to more than double in the next 20 years.
The American Diabetes Association’s list of common symptoms of diabetes include:
Recent studies suggest that consuming a high quality plant-based diet which includes components like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes is linked with a substantially reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Expanding health-promoting environments can reduce diabetes risk factors such as physical inactivity and unhealthy diets.
