Health Experts Find Diabetes A Growing Threat Among Asians

Delhi, Delhi India (PressExposure) April 18, 2007 -- Asians are more prone to diabetes, a disease caused due to excess weight, lack of exercise, and high intake of fatty foods, owing to their hard working lifestyle and frugal diet, as per health experts.

Health experts are afraid that diabetes, which is a chronic & potentially incurable disease, could largely affect the people living in Asia and affluent Asian communities dwelling abroad. Dr Shirine Boardman, diabetes expert at England’s Warwick Hospital said, "There is more diabetes than Aids. It will take over as the main health problem of the developing world soon." The statement appeared on ZEENEWS.COM on March 12, 2007.

Number of diabetics in the Western Pacific – the region that stretches from Japan and Mongolia in north to New Zealand in south – will likely hit 100 million by 2025 compared to 67 million at present.

Economic boom in Asian countries such as India and China has brought in prosperity for a number of underprivileged families. Growing riches among many in India and China could be the cause behind this jump in the cases of diabetes, as people in these two most populated countries of world now have more money to be spent on food and they are less likely to toil in fields.

As per RNCOS report “New Developments in Insulin Delivery System (2006)”, “Throughout the world, Asia has maximum patients of diabetes and the numbers continue to rise at an epidemic pace. India and China lead the region with highest number of diabetics. Pakistan, Indonesia and Japan are also seeing rise in cases of diabetes.
