Diabetes or “Sugar” in India
In India, diabetes has been known for a very long time as the sugar disease.
Whenever a diabetic visits somebody’s house and they offer tea, you will often hear the person say “sugar untu” which literally means “i have sugar”. The surprising thing is that the host will then ask “how about a little sugar? You have come from so far”. For an outsider this might seem rude, but its actually considered a necessity to force something good onto others. The guest has to politely decline to get tea or coffee with no sugar in it.
At all functions and festivals in India, it is a common occurence to see a variety of sweets or dessets. These sweets are a big part of every full course Indian meal. They are super delicious and are quite irrestible. With that in mind, these days “sugarless” sweets are being prepared which can be consumed by people with “sugar” without fear of their insulin level going berserk.

Glucometers, sugar testing machine and bloop pressure monitors are increasingly being bought by Indians. Technology helps monitor your health by giving a numerical value that can be measured, compared and tracked.
