Women with diabetes may suffer from depression
Diabetes affects more than 70 million people living in both city and village areas in India.
Half of the people suffering from diabetes are women, says a study.
Women living with diabetes face a lot of problems at both physical and mental level.
As diabetes increases the risk of developing many other illnesses in women, it also increases their chances of getting rejected for marriage.
Blame, negative comments, exclusion, rejection and discrimination are the problems women living with diabetes have to go through because of lack of social awareness.
These problems can also lead to women going through depression eventually.
Timely diagnosis, family support and lifestyle changes can help women prevent and control diabetes in a proper way.
