India is second largest country, which has Diabetes prevalence of over greater than 6 million people. According to Indian Diabetes Risk Survey, Type 2 Diabetes has been increasing by 8% every year in India. “Diabetes is a silent killer if not diagnosed and managed effectively. A lot of them do not get timely diagnosis and some do not get access to diabetes care. The diabetes care generally includes maintaining good glycemic control, eye care and foot care, and in some cases renal care.
