World Diabetes Day 2021: Tips To Control Diabetes

In 2007 General Assembly adopted resolution 61/225 designating 14 November as World Diabetes Day. The document recognized “the urgent need to pursue multilateral efforts to promote and improve human health, and provide access to treatment and health-care education.”

The resolution also encouraged the Member States to develop national policies for the prevention, treatment and care of diabetes in line with the sustainable development of their healthcare systems.

India is now home to a staggering number of 74 million diabetic patients according to the recently released data by International Diabetes Federation (IDF), a number which is estimated to almost double by 2045 if measures for early detection and preventive intervention are not put in place, inform experts.

Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attack, stroke and lower limb amputation. A healthy diet, physical activity and avoiding tobacco use can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. In addition, diabetes can be treated and its consequences avoided or delayed with medication, regular screening and treatment for complications.

The theme for World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is access to diabetes care.

100 years after the discovery of insulin, millions of people with diabetes around the world cannot access the care they need. People with diabetes require ongoing care and support to manage their condition and avoid complications.

Tips to Control Diabetes:

  • Regular Exercise
  • Controlling carbohydrate intake
  • Keeping body weight under control
  • Increase fibre intake
  • Eating small portions at regular intervals
  • Controlling stress and strain
  • Drinking enough water
  • Adequate sleep
  • Including chromium and magnesium in food
  • Including apple cider vinegar and cinnamon extract in the diet
