The vast majority of the people in our country have been either affected by or are vulnerable to diabetes Whereas the national average of people affected by diabetics is 2 %, the same in Kerala is 8%. There is only one way to get out of this extremely difficult situation i.e., making sugar-free, low glycemic index foods part of our daily life. Diamery Private Limited has been established by three women and an engineering student who have directly comprehended the struggles of diabetic patients in their own families. The purpose behind the formation of Diamerry Pvt. Ltd is to bring sugar-free, low glycemic index food and the other daily necessities of diabetic patients under one roof reiterating the Hypocratus doctrine of ‘let food be the medicine’. As per the latest figures released by the Diabetic Federation, one person dies in every seven seconds in the world due to the complications of diabetics. Our social progress necessitates effective control of the menace of diabetics-which recedes progress of mankind-through diet control and a healthy lifestyle
To provide diabetic friendly world class food
Kerala is the diabetic capital of India. Our endeavour is to reduce the present ratio of diabetic patients in kerala in to national level
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body’s systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels.
Over time, diabetes can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves.
Adults with diabetes have a two- to three-fold increased risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Combined with reduced blood flow, neuropathy (nerve damage) in the feet increases the chance of foot ulcers, infection and eventual need for limb amputation.
Diabetic retinopathy is an important cause of blindness, and occurs as a result of long-term accumulated damage to the small blood vessels in the retina. Diabetes is the cause of 2.6% of global blindness.
Diabetes is among the leading causes of kidney failure.
Simple lifestyle measures have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes. To help prevent type 2 diabetes and its complications, people should:
achieve and maintain a healthy body weight;
be physically active – doing at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate-intensity activity on most days. More activity is required for weight control;
eat a healthy diet, avoiding sugar and saturated fats; and
avoid tobacco use – smoking increases the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Early diagnosis can be accomplished through relatively inexpensive testing of blood sugar.
Treatment of diabetes involves diet and physical activity along with lowering of blood glucose and the levels of other known risk factors that damage blood vessels. Tobacco use cessation is also important to avoid complications.
Interventions that are both cost-saving and feasible in low- and middle-income countries include:
blood glucose control, particularly in type 1 diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes require insulin, people with type 2 diabetes can be treated with oral medication, but may also require insulin;
blood pressure control; and
foot care (patient self-care by maintaining foot hygiene; wearing appropriate footwear; seeking professional care for ulcer management; and regular examination of feet by health professionals).
