Diabetes

Last Reviewed: November 2010

Diabetes is a serious problem in the South Asian community. Studies have shown that South Asians can develop diabetes (and heart disease) sooner than other ethnic groups.

And more people are developing diabetes now than ever before.

If left untreated or improperly managed, diabetes can lead to a variety of serious health complications, including heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, blindness, amputations and erectile dysfunction.

The time to act is now. Take charge of your own health and the health of your family and community.

You can help prevent diabetes.
