Reversing Diabetes Clinic
Type-2 diabetes is a chronic disease that usually affects people in their mid-life. However, drastic changes in dietary and lifestyle modifications have led to an alarming rise in diabetes in people of all ages. Since it is a problem that affects the blood, diabetes can negatively impact all the organs in the body such as the eyes, heart, kidneys, hands, and legs, and lead to various health complications.
An estimated 77 million people suffer from diabetes in India
Nearly 60 to 70% of the 1500 patients who visit Narayana Nethralaya every day suffer from diabetes. High blood sugar levels in people with diabetes cause damage to the tiny blood vessels in the retina over time. This can lead to vision-threatening conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataract, and glaucoma. Though Type 2 diabetes is a serious and long-term medical condition that can be life-threatening, it can be controlled, reduced, or even reversed with simple, yet sustainable changes in our diet.
