 Gadge Diabetes Centre conducted a screening of 5888 people from Jan, 2018 to 15th Oct 2018 among different communities for diabetes age group varying from 20 years to 60 years and above. Out of 5888 people, 1814 people diagnosed with high sugar comprising of 806 males and 1008 female. Study has been conducted in various parts of western suburb from Andheri to Dahisar among communities Marathi, Gujarati, Marwadi, Muslim, Punjabi, South Indians and others with an intention of the study to understand the prevalence of diabetes in different communities. The standard questionnaire like eating habits, lifestyle, family history and physical activities were asked to those patient which are diagnosed with the high sugar.

 

Study has revealed that Marathi, Gujarati and Marwardis are more prone to diabetes in comparison to other communities. In similar line Muslims are also equal to these communities. Out of total 5888 people, total were 1814 diabetic comprising of Gujarati diabetic patients were 418, Marathi are 398, Marwadi 392, South Indian 78, Punjabi 98, Bengali 69, Muslim 278 and others were 83. Female were 1008 whereas male was 806. Age group 20-40 were 263, whereas 822 patients were from 41 to 60 years and 729 were above 61 years. In total diabetes patient 14.49% are falls in the age group of 20 to 40 which is alarming.

 

 

Dr Pradeep Gadge, Chief Diabetologist, Gadge Diabetes Centre said, “we have done more than 100 screening camps in different locations from Andheri to Dahisar. Diabetes has taken place in each and every house. Diabetes being a lifestyle disorder its prevalence depends on dietary behavior & cultural factors. Also ethnicity, your work pattern (sedentary or active), mental stress decides your diabetes risk.”

 

Certain communities like Gujaratis & Marwadis are more prone to diabetes due to their dietary pattern (high carb & high fat intake) and also due to sedentary lifestyle as well as mental stress (since most are businessman & have high mental stress) plus sleep deprivation. Marathis on the other hand are predominantly carb eaters which increase their risk. With Muslim community the risks are more as they eat high fat, calories dense foods (especially non vegetarian) and have erratic dietary timings said, Dr.Gadge.
