Diabetes is a slow poison as it leads to cascading health problems, if it is not controlled during the early stages, it can leave you helpless. Let me cite you an example of my young colleague, Chirag Barman, who was only 36 when he first discovered that he had diabetes. It was especially difficult for him as he hated taking medication even for a viral fever. After starting his treatment of diabetes, he found out one day that his right leg was swollen and had developed some kind of infection under his feet. Surprised, he sought immediate medical attention. However, it was too late. As a result of his diabetes, he wasn’t able to sense the injury in his feet that developed a few weeks back fast enough and his leg now needed to be amputated.
