India is a country with more than 69.1 million diabetics, that statistically makes us the second highest in the world. We come second only to China where the population of diabetics is 109.6 million. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), out of the 69 million about 36 million of these diabetic cases remain undiagnosed. That accounts to more than half the cases that exist in India. Another astonishing yet not widely known fact is that in 2015, 346,000 deaths were caused by diabetes in India which is 3.3% of all deaths that year.

The Pitfalls of Unhealthy Habits: Confronting Diabetes Head-On

Contracting diabetes, which is not contagious in nature, is still quite possible. Unhealthy living and eating habits can cause diabetes which is preventable to a certain extent. Stacking away junk food may seem to be the thing nowadays, gulping down tonnes and tonnes of sugar based products may be what you crave to do but when it’ll come down to the daily insulin shots, in hindsight one realizes that maybe it wasn’t worth the extra candy bar or the extra cheese topped pizza. It sounds delicious but restraint is what one must practice to ensure a healthy and long life.  

Educating and Empowering: Medi-Skool's Mission Against Diabetes

So in all honesty, let’s be real about what we’re dealing with here, it’s not just a condition but a widespread disease. A disease which people do not know a lot about and do not even take as seriously as they should. For example if a severe diabetic were to miss his insulin shots, in reality it might be lethal for him. Medi-Skool hopes to spread awareness about this major disease and educate people on how to tackle it, because if you contract diabetes it means that your future generations have a higher chance of contracting it. We hope to achieve this by the means of professional guidance and regular sit-downs with expert nutritionists who will help plan out your diet and regular physical exercises. If you have a family history of diabetes then you have an even higher chance of contracting the disease and your loved ones are also susceptible to it. Do not stay oblivious to the risk you are putting yourself and your loved ones through. Approach experts on how to avoid diabetes and in case of diabetes, how to tackle it in the safest and best way possible.


In conclusion, the prevalence of diabetes in India demands urgent attention and action. With millions affected and many more at risk, it's crucial to prioritize awareness, education, and proactive health management. By acknowledging the severity of the situation and seeking professional guidance, individuals can take significant strides towards preventing and managing diabetes effectively. Let us unite in the fight against diabetes, ensuring a healthier future for generations to come.

Hope the above information makes you start looking for an end-to-end healthcare solution.
