Type 2 Diabetes is a more common form of diabetes. This causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia.
If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it is not able to keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
India had an estimated 31,705,000 diabetics in the millennium year which is estimated to grow by over 100% to 79,441,000 by 2030. According to the International Diabetes Federation Atlas 2015, an estimated 69.2 million Indians are diabetic, which as per the WHO assessment, stood at 63 million in the year 2013.
