The world wide cases of Type 2 diabetes are rising dramatically, secondary to increasing sedentary behaviour and easier access to attractive calorie-dense foods. The most recent global predictions by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) suggest that there are 285 million people with diabetes currently worldwide. This is set to escalate to 438 million by 2030, with a further half billion at high risk.Dr Avinash Tank for Diabetes Surgeon in India, Diabetes Surgeon in Gujarat, Diabetes Surgeon in Ahmedabad.
Type 2 diabetes is a risk factor for vascular damage: affecting small blood vessels (eye; kidney and nerve) and large blood vessels (premature and more extensive heart, brain and limb blood vessels). Early death and damage to organs in diabetes result from such complications. The disease results from inadequate insulin (hormone that keeps sugar under control) production and action and results in hyperglycaemia (high sugar in blood). In addition, obesity, by itself, generates similar cardio-metabolic dysfunction.
Obesity is considered the primary risk factor for diabetes. It has been estimated that the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes is increased 93-fold in women and 42-fold in men who are severely obese rather than of healthy weight.
